Apple Tree - Lord Hindlip
Origin: Worcestershire, 1896
Apple Taste: Rich, aromatic
Flowering Group : 3
Size : Maiden
Harvest : October
Vigour : Medium
Lord Hindlip produces handsome crimson flushed fruit. It was a popular garden apple tree in the West Midlands, partly because of the qualities of its apples, which are not only tasty but store well; they are best eaten in the New Year rather than off the tree. Pleasingly, there is still a Lord Hindlip. The name might ring a bell if you're a keen historian; Hindlip Hall was a meeting place for the Gunpowder Plotters.

See our section on Pollination Groups to help you select your apple trees.
We supply apple trees on the most vigorous rootstocks available. They were created specifically for use in the UK and produce healthy, heavy cropping trees for our weather conditions. M106 produces a good garden sized apple tree, between 3 and 4 metres tall. Grown as a free standing tree it won't need staking, although initially best to use a cane to support your new plant. M25 rootstock will produce the 4m plus standard trees of a traditional orchard, where they would be planted between 6 and 8 metres apart. Please refer to our size guide for details.
All our Lord Hindlip trees are bare root. At the height of the lifting season there may be up to a month's delay between placing the order and dispatching due to pressure of orders, which are dealt with in date sequence, and the weather. Orders for apple trees taken from March to September are confirmed in September ready for dispatch from November. Please note there is an overall minimum order size of £50.
