Cox’s Orange Pippin
Cox’s Orange Pippin

Cox’s Orange Pippin Apple

Fall. Possibly a seedling of Ribston Pippin. Near Slough, Bucks, England, around 1825.

Deservedly one of the three or four most famous of all apples. Not only one of the best eating apples ever but also one of the most sought-after in modern apple breeding; parent or grandparent of many other varieties. Revered in the U.K.

Medium-sized all-purpose aromatic fruit is red-orange to red with orange russet striping and wash. Perfectly balanced slightly subacid flavor and crisp juicy tender flesh improve with storage.

Moderately vigorous moderately productive tree bears young and annually. Prefers cooler climates and higher pH (6.5-7.5+). The oldest Maine Cox’s I know is about 40 years old, thriving in Mercer, Zone 4. Scab resistant. Blooms midseason. Z4-6. Both Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees; semi-dwarf: 2-5' bare-root trees)
