Mid-season traditional English cooker, raised in 1862 in Cheshire. The green flushed red fruit are ready fro cropping a little eariler than Bramley, in September and will keep for a couple of months. The pale flesh will cook to give a mildly sharp flavour. Lord Derby is a heavy cropper and easy to grow and is in flowering group 4.

Plant in moist and fertile soils that are reasonably well drained, although Lord Derby is perhaps a little more resisitant to winter wet than some other apples. Final height on the MM106 rootstock will be 3-4m
