Lord Lambourne Braeburn Bountiful

Family Fruit Trees | Genus Malus

Lord Lambourne - Dessert Apple - Raised by Laxton Brothers Ltd at Bedford in 1907 from James Grieve x Worcester Pearmain. Received the Award of Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society in 1923. A high quality dessert apple, highly recommended by many experts, as is that it can be relied upon to crop both heavily and regularly almost anywhere. Its compact growth habit makes it suitable for small gardens and the brightly coloured fruit is sweet, juicy and aromatic. Picking time mid September.  

Braeburn - Dessert Apple - The original Braeburn was discovered and first grown commercially in New Zealand in 1952. This new clone is suitable for planting in the UK but does require a good long warm summer to fully ripen the fruit. The fruits have a firm flesh with a refreshing crisp flavour. Plant in a sunny sheltered spot. Fruit size is medium with crisp, firm, aromatic, red fruits. Picking time late October.

Bountiful - Cooking Apple - Raised in 1964 at East Malling Research Station in Kent. The first new cooking apple for decades. A good choice for people who want large fruit but haven't the space for a Bramley’s Seedling. This compact variety pollinates freely, does not suffer from mildew and is heavy cropping. The fruits are pale green, striped with orange to red and they store well. Fruit is sweet and juicy and retains its shape. Picking time late September.
