Kidd's Orange Red
Parentage: Cox’s Orange Pippin x Delicious
Description: Kidd's Orange Red is a high quality dessert apple, a good Cox alternative. Flushed bright deep orange-scarlet with short, broken red stripes. A creamy white flesh that's firm, crisp, juicy and sweet with rich aromatic flavour, a good balance of sugar and acidity. Grown commercially in New Zealand and in the UK. Well worth a place in the garden!
