Now correct me if I’m wrong but I am pretty sure that Letchworth gardens were originally planted with different fruit trees so that residents could share and all have a variety to eat. I know of figs, cherries, apples, pears, plums, greengages….
I would really like to know more about this. Are there any local history experts out there that know more?
But whether it was on purpose or not, let’s get sharing! Go to the Fruit page to find out about:
