2020 Cefnydd Hyfryd SV perry

In a phone call from a friend of a friend we were invited to collect and press the fruit from this very rare perry; according to the Welsh Perry and Cider Association who undertook DNA testing there are only three known trees, two of which we have access to in a small village near Abergavenny (see this link). As the DNA result returned no known existing variety the landowners were invited to name it. Cefnydd Hyfryd (“Lovely Ridge” in English) is named after their property.
