Leicestershire Apples -
Bumble Bee Lane Apple

A worthwhile eating apple but unfortunately biennial. Tastes very like Claygate Pearmain but is slightly more acidic, and it keeps better. Apple is more flattened and the eye is deeper. Possibly a good one to leave in the hedgerow, but it has been propagated. We will see what happens (it's on MM106) in a year or two.
