Malus Tydemans Late Orange - Mid Season
Description of Tydemans Late Orange Trees & Fruit:
A Tydeman's Late Orange apple has a lovely crackled colouration of purplish orange red over pale yellow-green.
The green-white flesh has a lip smacking flavour and crisp texture.
They will store for ages, becoming sweeter and less sharp, but still very tasty. An excellent alternative to Coxs.
The flowers are both pretty and frost resistant.
The trees are vigorous and will need attentive pruning when they are young to keep them in shape.
Although they are a hardy tree, they are not recommended for windy sites, as their fruiting spurs are quite brittle.
