Lord Lambourne's apples have a yellow skin flushed red and excellent, subtle flavour. They are one of the earliest aromatic apples. Lord Lambourne crops heavily and is recommended - it has the RHS AGM. Easily grown, Lord Lambourne fills the gap between James Grieve and the ubiquitous Cox's Orange Pippin. Good cropper, mildew resistant, does well in cold wet areas. Will keep well too.

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 Lambourne 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 Lord Lambourne 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.
