Description

A very prolific late culinary apple, raised in 1862 in Cheshire, but proven hardy further north, with the attractive pink blossom being fairly frost resistant when in flower. Lord Derby has many attributes: The grass-green fruit have a fine flavour and stay intact when cooked; the tree is very hardy and suitable for the North; it has good resistance to scab and succeeds well on wet soils. It’s only vice is a tendency towards over-bearing, so a good thinning in July can be useful!This self-fertile culinary Apple is believed to have originated from Cheshire, UK in 1862
