Growing Calendar for Apple Fiesta - Apple Tree
Delivery: Early November to Late April
Fiesta is a great cox-type apple with the classic aromatic and sweet-sharp flavour of a cox.
The fruit has the attractive orangey flush of traditional English apples, Fiesta is the perfect juicing apple.
Fiesta is a relatively new English apple, developed in Kent in the 1970s but with a very traditional English style and flavour. Cox's Orange Pippin is one of its parents, and it has inherited the classic Cox aromatic sweet/sharp flavour.
Visually it also looks the part, with the attractive orange flush so typical of traditional English apples. Fiesta is one of the best apples for juicing. It produces copious amounts of juice, with a very good rich sweet / sharp flavour. It can also be used as a substitute for Cox's Orange Pippin in apple cookery - slices keep their shape when cooked.
Unlike Cox's Orange Pippin, Fiesta also stores very well and remains firm and sweet - a quality it probably inherits from its other parent, an American variety called Idared.
Fiesta is grown commercially on a small-scale in the UK and France, sometimes marketed as Red Pippin. It is easy to grow and a reliable cropper, making it an excellent choice for the garden or small orchard. Fiesta® is a protected variety
It is easy to grow and reliably produces heavy crops in October it is sometimes marketed as Red Pippin.
