Apple 'Cox's Orange Pippin'
Regarded to be the finest tasting dessert apple, the rich aromatic flavour and crisp, juicy texture set this apple apart from other varieties. Apple 'Cox's Orange Pippin' produces medium sized, orange-red fruits with thin skins. Although not considered to be the easiest variety to grow, it is well suited to the temperate UK climate, producing a good crop that can be harvested from September for immediate use and store for a short period too.
Grafted onto a dwarfing rootstock, the crowns of 'Cox's Orange Pippin' apple trees are easily reached to prune, spray and pick your delicious fruit. 'Cox's Orange Pippin' is not self-fertile so for the heaviest crops it is best grown with another variety such as 'Braeburn'. If you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as suitable pollinator.Root wrap plant supplied. Height and spread: 2.5m (8') Rootstock: M9.
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
