Cox's Orange Pippin is often referred to simply as Cox, and is known in Britain as the sweetest, crispest and tastiest apple! The apples are medium size, with a vibrant orange-red colour, which deeps to bright red. The fruit is mottled with patches of golden-russet. The flesh is yellow-white in colour with a fine grain and loads of juice. You will easily identify a Cox’s Pippen – give a ripe one a shake and listen for the rattling sound that the seeds make, they are only lightly attached to the flesh and free to move around.
This is the ultimate dessert apple. It can eaten straight off the tree or sliced and used to make a scrumptious buttery caramel-topped Tarte Tatin. Cox's Orange Pippin is used in the production of cider, where it is blended with other apple varieties.
Malus domestica 'Cox's Orange Pippin' thrives in fertile, well-drained soil and enjoys full sun. It can however, be temperamental and is less suited to the Northern regions of the country. It is a self fertile tree, making it ideal to be planted alone in a smaller garden. It can also be used to cross pollinate other apple trees. Crops of fruit are ready for harvesting in Mid October.
We offer Malus domestica 'Cox's Orange Pippin' as a rootstock M27. M27 is an extreme dwarfing rootstock that can be trained for containers, as a bush, pyramid, spindlebush, cordon and espalier. Plant with a spacing of 1.5m between the rows for best results in weed and grass free areas. When left unpruned it will reach heights of 2m in a 10 year period.
