A photo of an original apple tree in what remains of the first orchard created by Sir William Fox at ‘Westoe’ in Marlon.
The variety is known currently as ‘Jim’s Favourite’ after the current owner, Jim Howard’s, Uncle Jim.
This is an example of heritage fruit trees being found on properties around New Zealand. We were able to obtain grafting wood and graft a number of these trees at NZTCA Central Districts Branch’s latest
grafting day to preserve this variety.
One day, we may be able to determine its original name.
