Tydeman's Late Orange
Parentage: Laxton’s Superb x Cox’s Orange Pippin
Description: Tydeman's Late Orange is a late keeping dessert apple. It's appearance is a lot like Laxton's Superb, purplish-red colour with darker broken stripes and some grey russet. Flesh is cream, almost yellow. Very firm, crisp, sweet and fairly juicy! As rich and aromatic as Cox when it's eaten before Christmas. Grown commercially on small scale in the UK, also a great garden variety.
History: Raised by H.M. Tydeman at East Malling Research Station, Maidstone, England in 1930. Introduced in 1949. Received an Award of Garden Merit in 1965.
