Martyna found a basketful of goodies appealing when she learned about English apples and pears during a school outing.

She joined other Soham primary school youngsters for a fruitful morning at the town's Budgens supermarket on Saturday.

The children from St. Andrew's Primary School met Adrian Barlow, chief executive of the industry ­association, English Apples and Pears.

Wisbech grower, David Wheeler, brought a tractor load of apples direct from his orchard for the event, which took place to mark the start of British Food Fortnight.
