Description: Queen Cox is a distinctly flattened cooking apple. The best commercial form of Cox that's brownish-red with broken bright red stripes and smooth skin. Flesh is white, rather soft, juicy and acid-like. Cooks to a bright yellow puree and makes a good baked apple. Good yields due to its precocious self fertility. Primarily a garden and exhibition variety.
