[Apple] - Duke of Lambourne

 This particular apple, from one of 120 heirloom apple trees, in an orchard run by the poet Peter Lach-Newinsky, is, he tells me, a Duke of Lambourne. As I ate it before I had quite finished this sketch I can vouch for its deliciousness, the vivid green centre of both the stalk and blossom ends, the rough dry feel to the skin, the even creamy texture of the flesh, sweet with an airy substance to it, like biting into a concentrated cloud, was just right. Hail the range of apple trees, apples and those who grow them!
