Cox's Orange Pippin
Cox's Orange Pippin is possible, arguably, might be, thought by many, not actually confirmed but generally considered one of the best flavoured dessert apples of all time or most of the time or at least a big chunk of time. If not a big chunk then at least last week when I was in a room full of Cox's Orange Pippin growers. If you thought the taste of shop purchased Cox's Orange Pippin was good then wait until your try one that has ripened on your own tree. You can store the fruit for around 2 months under ideal conditions (dry, cool and dark).
As it has such a distinctive taste, several/many/more than one person has tried to cross it with other apples to get the taste with less hassle as Cox's Orange Pippn is not the easiest of trees to grow. Don't be put off by this, you do not need a PHD in Cox's to at least keep it alive or have resuscitation equipment on permanent standby in the garden to get the fruit, just compared with some zero maintenance trees, this one needs a bit more tending.
Very good for juicing and can be used as the sweet part when making cider. Not so great at putting up a "Rocky" type fight to some apple diseases and pests, more like Adrian swinging her handbag but if you do a bit of research and inspect regularly you should be fine. With greater risk comes greater reward!
Month Of Fruiting: OctoberType Of Apple: Eating...(possibly throwing if you have anti-social neighbours)Fertility: (C3) SELF-FERTILE. Does not require another apple tree to provide fruit.

All Our Trees Are Grown In The UKAs far as we know, none of our trees have sneaked off for holidays abroad and so are UK Grown.Planting In The Corner Of A GardenAir and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it.
