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