Malus Domestica Lord Lambourne

Lord Lambourne is one of those prodigies who has taken all the best bits from both of his parents, James Grieve and Worcester Pearmain, and become something quite different. The apple itself is of a pleasing round shape and looks streaky red over orange/green with a smidgin of russeting present. The taste is aromatic - in fact Lord Lambourne is the earliest of the aromatic apples to fruit - and very appley with a strong and pleasant taste that is tempered by clear acidity and will sweeten over time, even after picking. The flesh is clean white and juicy to the bite. Lord Lambourne is very easy to grow in the garden and is highly resistant to scab and to hard winters. Even its blossom which comes very early in May will survive a frost or two so you are always guaranteed a crop.

A home for Lord Lambourne

This is a tree that can adapt to any garden. The apples will be popular with young and old and it is good enough to include in a collection of apples but also if you are constrained for space. Being partially self-fertile, it is recommended that you plant another apple tree close to Lord Lambourne from Group C or D unless you have some flowering crabapples in the vicinity which will also do the job. A suggestion would be a very different dessert apple, Jupiter - an enormous contrast in taste and size - because one of Lord Lambourne's attractions is the small size of its fruit making them very attractive for children. An unusual cooker would be Howgate Wonder which doubles up as an eating apple later in the season. If you are planning to put your apple tree somewhere prominent in the garden then you could try growing some lovely May tulips like White Triumphator around it for added effect.

Who was Lord Lambourne?

Lord Lambourne the apple tree was introduced by Laxton Brothers in Bedford, like the Laxtons Superb, but may well have been named after Amelius Lockwood who became the first Baron Lambourne in 1917 having been the President of the RHS and also the vice president of the RSPCA! Flora and fauna in one!
