Cox Self Fertile
Description: Cox Self Fertile is a self fertile form of Cox’s Orange Pippin. Heavy, late crop of the best eating apple in the world. The fruit is orange over greenish-yellow with deep cream flesh that has sweet, aromatic flavour and is juicy and crisp. Best when it's picked and eaten straight from the tree or can be made into home-pressed apple juice. Good variety for growing in northern areas of the UK. Striking pinkish-white clusters of blossom during the spring. A highly recommended variety for less than ideal Cox areas!
History: Introduced in 1975 in Bristol, England. The original Cox's Orange Pippin was raised by Richard Cox at Colnbrook Lawn, Slough, Buckinghamshire, England in about 1825. Said to be seedling of Ribston Pippin.
