Description

Malus domestica Fiesta / Red Pippin - Eating Apples

A blushing red and yellow beauty of an apple, with a fine flavour and crunchy flesh, the Fiesta is one of the best offspring of the famous Cox's Orange Pippin and, unlike its parent, is easy to grow. Basically a sweet tasting apple, Fiesta has preserved some of the subtle blend of flavours that make Cox so great, though it can't really be called a substitute. They juice well and are good for storage - after picking in late September, Fiesta Apples last into the new year without too much loss of flavour.

Fiesta Apple Trees: History and Parentage

Fiesta is one of the East Malling Research Station's great creations, raised by the distinguished Dr Frank Alston in 1972. The other parent is Idared, which has some similarities to Cox in terms of flavour and stores well - both qualities have been passed on to Fiesta. Recently, there has been a drive to rename it Red Pippin.

Apple Tree Pollination Guide for Fiesta

Being partially self-fertile, you can get away with not having a pollination partner, though your crop size will suffer a bit. Fiesta is a mid-late season flowerer and can cross pollinate with any tree in the mid or late season categories.

Rootstocks and Cultivation Notes

Our Fiesta Apple trees are grown on MM106 rootstocks, with the exception of the cordons (M9) which is an ideal combination for both restricted forms and a good sized garden tree about 4 metres high. Fiesta apple trees are quite compact and are one of the best apples for growing as cordons and other wire trained forms. They are very hardy and we recommend them if late frosts are an issue in your area. Though they are not very vigorous, they become heavy croppers in time with an even harvest from year to year.

7.5 - 12 litre Potted Trees: These trees are not meant to be kept in pots. They will be fine for up to 12 months (until planted in the ground) as long as they are well watered (but not over watered).
Patio fruit trees: Recommended for growing in large patio containers and can be kept in pots.
