National Fruit Show 2011


Russet 1st prize large 

The National Fruit Show was held at Detling showground on the 19th - 20th October this year.

As it was our first year as Robert Mitchell Farms we decided to enter some of our fruit in the competition classes.

Surprisingly we were very successful; winning 1st prize for Egremont Russet apples and winning the heaviest apple competition with our Bramleys, one of which weighed in at 1.01 kilos. We gained 2nd prize for our cobnuts and 3rd prize for our heaviest pears.

Alex, our son, won 2nd prize in the Novice category with his Golden Delicious apple entry.

It was a very successful show; showcasing the wonderful fruit that can be produced in this country.
