The varieties we classify as Easy are those which we think are particularly well-suited to the first-time fruit grower. These varieties are reliable croppers with simple pollination requirements.

We classify some varieties as Some skill needed. These varieties usually have some unusual growing requirements, or are just fussy in some way. However even a novice fruit-grower should still be successful if care is taken, and our variety pages will explain how to get the best results.
