Top Fruit Breeding for Modern Customers

Britain's most forward-thinking topfruit breeding programme.

Our focus is to develop varieties that growers will want to plant and customers will love to eat.


Scion Fruits is a joint venture between Richard Hochfeld Ltd, one of the largest suppliers of apples and pears to the retail sector, and Frank P Matthews, a UK nursery supplying both the garden centre and farming sectors with innovative and exciting new topfruit varieties.

The aim of our joint venture is to promote the growing, commercialisation and consumption of British apples and pears through the careful selection of new varieties from our bespoke breeding programme.
