Cox’s Orange Pippin
One of the truly great fresh eating dessert apples. It originated in 1825 in England from seeds of Ribston Pippin. Superlatives abound when describing the flavor – spicy, honeyed, nutty, pear-like. A rich, full flavored apple with a pleasing aroma. Fruit is medium sized with yellowish skin flushed with an attractive reddish-orange blush. Cream colored flesh is fine-grained, firm and juicy. Ripens September to October and keeps until January.
