Growing Calendar for Apple Ellisons Orange Bare Root Fruit Tree
Delivery: Mid November to Late May
Apple Ellison's 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 worth growing on your own plot
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.
