Lane’s Prince Albert is a classic British cooking apple, juicy and sharp, fairly large but not as big as Bramley, late-keeping. The tree needs a pollinator, and it crops well. It is easy to grow in a garden orchard, with fair disease resistance. Introduced in 1850.
The apples do not disintegrate in the oven, and so they are good for recipes such as apple pie and tarte tatin. They can be picked from October, or left on the tree, and they gradually become sweeter and can even be eaten as a dessert apple in December.
