When I saw these little apples they took me back to my childhood. My maternal grandfather was a market gardener, a specialist chrysanthemum grower. He also had an orchard and marketed the apples but in the middle was a small tree that produced small red apples and they were never picked so I ate them, they were sweet and crisp, I guess the tree was the pollinator.
As for the title, a play on words in many ways, the apples are a variety called Rockit, originating in New Zealand but these were grown in Kent.
