Cameo recipe of the month: Cameo Valentines Fondue

mmmmCameo®… Never was the phrase ‘let nature take it’s course’ so meaningful as when it comes to delving into the history of the Cameo apple. One day, a well-known Golden Delicious took a fancy to another well-known, the Red Delicious. Having spent some time together, courting, and the like, they produced a fantastic specimen of an apple, the Cameo. Ahhh, romance at its freshest. Not only did growers ‘ooooh’ and ‘aaaah’ over the beauty of this new arrival but were blown-away by the flavour and texture beneath the skin.


Now grown widely, they have become the ‘go-to’ apple for those looking for a distinctive, new taste,  whilst remaining faithful to fruit grown on our own fair shores. With the season running from October to April, it’s the time to be jumping on that apple cart and taking advantage of their crunchy, juicy lusciousness!

We’ve made it really easy for you to find out where you can lay your hands on them, just look at our Where To Buy page.
