Taylors Favourite is a mid-season cooking apple which grows in Mr. Holmes’ orchard at Whitebeck Farm in the Lyth Valley. It was as its name says, the favourite apple of the Taylor family, who took the fruit to sell at the local markets in days gone by. A few trees which were originally planted in 1879 are disease free and still produce a good crop of healthy colourful autumn cooking apples. It is considered the best autumn cooking apple for the area and has stood the test of time. When cooked it softens but keeps its shape completely, developing a rich flavour.
