Apple Cox's Orange Pippin - Apple Tree

  • Catalogue Code 1070-5028
  • Pack Contents: 1x Bare Root Tree

Cox's Orange Pippin is a well known and very popular variety known for its reliability in cooler climates.

The thin skinned aromatic, crisp and juicy apples have a disjunctive flavour that is second to none.

This popular and tasty variety is self-fertile (SF) so it flowers and fruits independently. They produce fruit, even when planted in isolation.

This is the classic English apple, often regarded as the finest of all apples. It sets the benchmark for flavour in apples to which all others aspire.

The aromatic complexity and depth of flavours in a good Cox's Orange Pippin are remarkable. In our personal experience pear, melon, freshly-squeezed orange juice, and mango are all readily evident in a good example.

Cox's Orange Pippin is a mid/late season variety and is probably at its best if picked when fully ripe, or picked slightly under-ripe and left in storage for a month or so - it is not a long-keeper though.

Although primarily considered a variety for eating fresh, Cox is an excellent apple for juice / cider blends as well. It is also a versatile culinary apple, with an inherently sweet flavour when baked, and is a common ingredient in English apple preserves, chutneys, and mincemeat

Cropping from October it is Ideal for eating fresh, it stores well too.

Well-shaped tree, which sadly lost one branch tip as a result of careless handling by the Yodel delivery driver (it was upside down!).
