Malus domestica 'Kidd's Orange Red' is a hardy tree that is well suited to the colder northern regions. It does best in full sun and fertile, well-drained soil. The fruit is distinctive with an aromatic sugary flavour with a hint of honey. The flesh is white and crisp, making it ideal to use in cooking, desserts and salads.
In April and May, your Apple Kidd's Orange Red bursts with a lovely display of white flowers which precede the fruits. Malus domestica 'Kidd's Orange Red' is ideal for home gardens and produces a heavy crop of fruit ready for harvesting in early October. To guarantee cross pollination plant in a sunny, open site with another tree from the same or adjacent flowering group. The 'Granny Smith’ makes a perfect partner.
