COX'S ORANGE PIPPIN England 1830 (seed of Ribston Pippin)

$34.95

Cox Orange Pippin is highly esteemed in England as a dessert apple; produces excellent fruit in cooler summer climates. First grown in 1830 England, by the retired brewer and horticulturist Richard Cox. Medium sized apple, red and yellow, usually striped. The flesh is yellow, firm, crisp, very juicy, richly aromatic and some say almost spicy. Flavor is enhanced when fruit ripens off the tree. When Cox Orange Pippin apples are ripe they can be shaken, the seeds make a rattling sound since the seeds are loosely secured in the apple core. A heavy bearer and one of the best apples for espalier.
