Tynedale Fruit Map

For fruit foragers – the Tynedale Fruit Map !

2016 promises yet again to be a bumper year for fruit and yet again a lot of this will not be harvested and go to waste unless picked and processed. To encourage people to find and harvest the fruit trees we are planning to map the location of all fruit trees on public land, beside roads etc – anywhere that people are welcome to collect free fruit.

Do you know of any ‘wild’ trees or trees on public land that are freely accessible? If so please send details of the type of fruit and location and we will enter it on a google map for all to see. Fruit can include apples and pears, crabapples, damsons, sloes etc but not blackberries, mushrooms etc .

Please send info to : suehick3@gmail.com or a member of the Edible Hexham group

Many thanks and happy foraging !
