'Problems of the English apple', letter to The Times , 12 Aug 1980, 1980

MS. Darlington c. 78/E.652

  • Request
The correspondence arose from a leader in The Times, 'A French apple a day', 19 July 1980. Darlington's first letter referred to English apple varieties bred at the John Innes Institution but not made available to growers and the public. Among the letters following publication of his letter was one from Basil Neame, which led Darlington to draft and send a second letter, 'The lost English apples', which was not published in view of possible legal complications. The file includes manuscript drafts for both letters, press cuttings and letters from readers.
