A bit more detail please

If you could get a closer photo of the leaves and fruit, it would help enormously. These are the details that help with identification. Certainly, there's lots of Rosebay willowherb in the picture!

Apple ID

If its randomly growing in a field it may be a seedling that's grown from a discarded apple core - in which case, not any specific variety. If you think it may have been deliberately planted there at some time, I suggest you take a sample of fruit to a RHS apple day at one of their gardens over the next few weeks or to Brogdale Trust apple day (Kent)for identification. RHS also offer ID service to members by post.

apple tree

Thanks for that the reason I can not get a closer picture there is a ditch round it and its covered in bramble bushes, and I do not have a zoom lens on my camera,the tree has been there for about 10 years that I know of.
