General description of Charles Ross:

This is a versatile, good sized apple that does it all. It is primarily eaten fresh; its taste is sharp with a tang of orange when freshly picked and it sweetens when it has been stored for a bit. The texture is a little soft and light, becoming looser as it ripens. Charles Ross can also be cooked nicely: it's ideal for apple pie with a bit of chunkiness to it, but it's a bit too lumpy for apple sauce unless the fruit are very ripe. It is a really juicy apple that also makes great cider if it is blended with other varieties.
It looks a bit like a Cox's with the red/orange streaks typical of the Cox family although it is altogether a larger apple. The flesh is white.

Rootstocks:
All of our Charles Ross trees are grown on MM106 rootstocks.

Pollination Partners for Charles Ross:
Your trees are partially self fertile and their flowers must be pollinated to make good crops.
Charles Ross is in pollination Group C.
This means that they will cross-pollinate with other apple trees in pollination Groups B, C and D.

See our Guide to Apple Tree Pollination for a full list of partners & more tips about pollination.

Charles Ross Disease notes:
Disease resistance: Scab (strong).

History & Parentage:
This is a Victorian apple, crossed in about 1890 from the famous eating apple Cox's Orange Pippin and the cooking apple Peasgood Nonsuch. It is named after the head gardener in the late 1800's at Welford Park in Berkshire, who was a keen apple breeder. It has won the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

How Apple Trees are Measured & Delivered:
Our fruit trees are delivered in up to 3 shapes and you can also buy selected apple trees as ready made cordons.
Maiden: This unbranched tree is the smallest starting size. You can train maidens into espaliers and cordons.
Cordon: Charles Ross trees are spur-bearers, so they can be made into cordons and espaliers.
Bush: This is a style of freestanding tree with a short trunk of about 60cms. It will grow to about 3 metres tall.
Half-Standard: This is a freestanding style that will grow into a full sized, "normal" apple tree, about 4 metres tall.
