- These are always the first apples of the new season.
- Discovery did not come from a scientific breeding, they were literally discovered by an apple grower on a tree in the hedge of his orchard; grown from a pip dropped by a bird perhaps?
- Discovery apples are a little like Beaujolais Noveau – their appeal is in being fresh and new, straight from the tree. They are a change from imported apples when they come into season.
- They are at their best when served slightly chilled from the fridge.
