Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews

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.
Estimated time to best yields: 5 years.

Plant apple trees in any well drained soil in a sheltered sunny position. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole and drive the stake into the ground to support the tree. Staking after planting may result in damage to the root ball. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level and firm them into the ground. Fasten the tree to the stake using a tree tie, and water well.
