Lord Lambourne apple trees

RHS AGM for Lord Lambourne
  • Pick: Mid-season
  • Flowering group: 2
  • Uses: Eat fresh | Juicing 

Lord Lambourne was introduced in 1907 and is very much in the tradition of classic English high-quality dessert apples. It has the pleasing uniform shape - round, and not too flattened - and typical orange flush over green, with a hint of russet.

On biting into a Lord Lambourne the first thing that strikes you is the juice and acidity. The flesh is creamy-white and quite crisp, and the flavor is pleasantly strong.

Although a mid-season variety, Lord Lambourne has some of the aromatic flavors of later-ripening English aromatic varieties making it a useful variety to grow to fill the gap between early and later varieties.
