BBC World Service 18 Jan 2024 Food Chain; How to invent an apple Available for over a year.

In this week’s episode Ruth Alexander finds out about the science behind finding that perfect crunch, how long it takes to be able to taste an apple you’ve spent years planning
and how to grab consumers’ attention with a new breed.

Ruth also visits a wassail at Apple Barn, Dunham Massey, Cheshire to experience an ancient tradition involving cider, hanging toast on a tree
and lots of singing to encourage a good apple harvest for the year ahead.
