Lord Hindlip Apple

Apple

Description: Lord Hindlip is a late, high quality dessert apple. A very handsome apple with beautifully coloured crimson skin and fine physique. Creamy white flesh, tinged green, fairly firm, fine-textured and a rich aromatic flavour. Its an excellent keeper, best left for as long as possible on the tree. An excellent cooker too which keeps its shape and is very decorative!

History: Raised on Lord Hindlip's estate in Worcestershire, England where it was first recorded and introduced by Wakins of Hereford in 1896. That same year, it received an Award of Merit from Royal Horticultural Society.
