Characteristics of Improved Lambrook Pippin Trees:
General description of Improved Lambrook Pippin:
This versatile fruit is equally good for cider, eating and cooking, although it needs to be blended with other cider varieties to make a full bodied drink. It is non-astringent and makes a delicious apple juice, especially when it is mixed with a sweet eating apple to round out the flavour. It has attractive yellow skin, with purple and red streaks. As an eating apple, it has a good crunchy bite and sharp, refreshing flavour.
This tree is a good choice if you only have room for one apple tree, although it will need nearby pollination partners.
All of our Improved Lambrook Pippin trees are grown on M25 rootstocks.
