Cox's Orange Pippin Apple Trees

Cox Orange Pippin apple trees carry quintessentially English eating apples that also juice very well. In a good year, this is one of the all-time best tasting apples anywhere. It has a wonderful juicy texture and a complex, tangy, aromatic taste with a hint of spices and suggestion of melons. It doesn't store for long, but the juice from any excess can be frozen indefinitely. The tree itself is quite slow-growing and upright; it's ideal for low maintenance cordons & espaliers. 

There is a price for perfection and the downside of all Coxs Orange Pippins is that they are more susceptible to disease than some other apple trees. They will generally be happier in the drier Eastern parts of the country although we have a large stock tree here in Somerset that crop wonderfully. We do not spray it with chemicals (winter wash does not count as it is organic) but we do try to follow best practice. Water when it is dry. Mulch annually with well-rotted organic matter. Sweep up and burn fallen leaves. Pick off and destroy rotting fruit. Collect windfalls. If you keep your trees healthy, they will reward you with the best eating apples in the country.

History & Parentage:
The original Cox's Orange Pippin was bred around 1825 by Richard Cox of Buckinghamshire. One of its parents is thought to be the Ribston Pippin. The nurseryman Charles Turner began selling it in the 1850's. This self-fertile variety was developed from a sport of the original tree in Kent and released in 1994. It appears on any list of the greatest British eating apples.

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: Cox trees are spur-bearers, so they can be made into cordons and espaliers.
