The apple. A familiar, comforting fruit. And a fruit that has a long history in Wales. Apples of Wales tells the untold story of apple growing in Wales, a story that extends from the mists of time into the twentieth century.

Author Biography:
Originally from Cardiff, Carwyn has come via Oxford to settle in Carmarthen. He tries his best to be a husband, father, gardener, linguist and Christian, and sometimes manages. Carwyn was one of the group behind the project to establish a heritage orchard of native Welsh apples in the National Botanic Garden of Wales for the first time. The orchard will open in 2018.

Further Information:
The heritage of Welsh apples is a fascinating journey through mythology, medieval poetry, cuisine, alcohol, religion and farming. As we follow the tale, we will see that the story of the apple touches every corner of the country, and throws light on its wider history from unexpected angles.
