Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of Apple Day

Apple Day, 21 October, was launched in 1990 by Common Ground, a charity based in Dorset, England. 

Apple Day was intended to be both a celebration and a demonstration of the variety we are in danger of losing, not simply in apples, but in the richness and diversity of landscape, ecology and culture too. It has also played a part in raising awareness in the provenance and traceability of food.

Common Ground has used the apple as a symbol of the physical, cultural and genetic diversity we should not let slip away. In linking particular apples with their place of origin, they hope that orchards will be recognized and conserved for their contribution to local distinctiveness, including the rich diversity of wildlife they support.

  • Did you know? American apple varieties include Pixie Crunch, Pink Sparkle, American Mother, Westfield Seek-no-further, Sops in Wine and Nonnetit Bastard.
