Kidds Orange Red Bare Root Apple Tree

  • Catalogue Code 1070-9381
  • Pack Contents: 1x Fruit Tree

Kidd's Orange Red is named in honour of New Zealand orchard owner and 20th centaury apple breeder James Hutton Kidd. Kidd's Orange Red is something really special, some might say a benchmark; it is undoubtedly an outstanding English style apple. It has complex, aromatic flavours with hints of honey and the thin yellow skin is flushed with orange-red as well as some patches of russet. It’s slightly flattened shape which also lends to its appeal.

The dense flesh has a creamy colour giving it a firm bite and although the Cox's Orange Pippin is its parent it is much sweeter, thanks to its other parent, the Red Delicious. Kidd's Orange Red is a late season variety and is ready for pickling from mid-October. A good choice for gardens because of its ease of growing and reliability of cropping but also because of the tolerance to temperate climates.
