Lacure. See Black Heart.

Lady Southampton's.—This is a medium sized, yellow, heart-shaped cherry, of the Bigarreau class, with firm, but not juicy, flesh. It is now very little cultivated, and is but a worthless variety. End of July and beginning of August.

Large Black Bigarreau. See Tradescant's Heart.

Late Bigarreau.—Large, obtuse heart-shaped, and uneven in its outline, broadly and deeply indented at the apex. Skin of a fine rich yellow, with a bright red cheek, which sometimes extends over the whole surface. Stalk an inch and a half long. Flesh yellowish, considerably firm, sweet, and agreeably flavoured. Middle of August. Tree very productive.

Late Duke (Anglaise Tardive).—Large, obtusely heart-shaped, and somewhat compressed. Skin shining, of a fine bright red, which becomes darker as it ripens. Stalk one inch and a half to two inches long. Flesh pale yellow, tender, juicy, and richly flavoured. Beginning and middle of August.

Late Morello. See Morello.

Lemercier. See Heine Hortense. There is a Lemercier grown by Mr. Rivers which is later than Reine Hortense, and, before it is quite ripe, considerably more acid than that variety. The tree has also a more rigid and upright growth, like the Dukes; but it is evidently a seminal variety of Heine Hortense, and, being a better bearer, is, perhaps, the preferable kind to grow of that admirable cherry.

Lion's Heart. See Ox Heart.

Logan. — Above medium size, obtuse heart-shaped. Skin deep blackish-purple. Stalk an inch and a half long. Flesh brownish-red, almost firm, juicy, sweet, and richly flavoured. Middle and end of July. The tree blooms late.

Louis XVIII. See Reine Hortense.

Luke Ward's (Lukewards).— Medium sized, obtuse heart-shaped. Skin dark brownish-red, becoming almost black as it ripens. Stalk about two inches long. Flesh half-tender, dark purple, juicy, sweet, and richly flavoured. End of July and beginning of August. Superior to the Black Heart and the Corone.
