Apple Ellisons Orange Bare Root Fruit Tree

  • Catalogue Code 1070-9382
  • Pack Contents: 1x bare root tree

Apple Ellisons Orange is a Cox's Orange Pippin descendant which was bred in Lincolnshire around 1905. With the depth and range of flavour it is definitely a significant Cox-style apple.

The flavour has a slight hint of aniseed but overall there is a aromatic complexity that some claim can be as intense as Cox. It is a mid-season apple which ripen in September and should be eaten as soon after picking  as it does not keep well.

Ellisons Orange has the appearance of a classic English apple with soft, almost pear-like flesh that is much juicier than Cox. Easier to grow than Cox, Ellisons Orange is a must for any lover of classic English apples.

Ellison's Orange is known for its background aniseed note which enhances the aromatic complexity so typical of a Cox-style apple. In a good year the flavour of Ellison's Orange makes it one of a very small number of varieties which could truely be put on a par with Cox's Orange Pippin.
