More than 20 people turned out at The Long Ground, green space land owned by Stroud Town Council between Cainscross Road near Homebase and the back of Tesco.
The event was organised by town councillor Ben Spencer (Central ward), Jim Mathison, the town council green spaces manager, and supported by Stroud Valleys Project.
“We planted 10 trees, all dessert apples and all but one variety originate from Gloucestershire,” said Cllr Spencer.
“We were delighted with the turnout and thank everyone for lending a hand with the work.”
Among the varieties planted was Lodgemore Nonpariel, an endangered variety first developed in the early 1800s a quarter of a mile away at Lodgemore, just off Cainscross Road.
The Stroud Apple Town project is a collaboration between Stroud Town Council, Stroud Valleys Project, Stroud District Council, Down to Earth Cooperative, Stroud Farmers Market and the Gloucestershire Orchard Group.
