Kidds Orange Red Bare Root Apple Tree

  • Catalogue Code 1070-9381
  • Pack Contents: 1x Fruit Tree
  • Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit
  • Crisp sweet/sharp balance in every apple
  • Superior offspring to parent Red Delicious

Kidd's Orange Red is named in honour of New Zealand orchard owner and 20th century 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. Its slightly flattened shape which also lends to its appeal.

Although it is primarily a sweet apple, unlike most other sweet apple varieties Kidd’s Orange Red has a very rich complexity to its flavour. It is fairly crisp but at the same time pleasantly chewy, every bite releases more and more juicy flavour.

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.
