Little Pax ®

Apple

Description: Little Pax ® is a late season English dessert apple. A very attractive 'pearmain' shaped bright red fruit with attractive yellow lenticels and a superb sweet, aromatic flavour. Stores well throughout winter, keeping well into the New Year if refrigerated.

History: Found as a seedling tree in the gardens of St. Cecilia's Abbey, Ryde, Isle of Wight in 2000.

The Story of Little Pax®         
Not too long ago, one little tree – with no name and of
unknown origin, was gifted to St Cecilia’s Abbey in Ryde
on the Isle of Wight.

Benedictine nuns at the 19th Century Abbey planted and
nurtured this sapling in their beautiful and peaceful walled
gardens overlooking the Solent. In this quiet and safe haven,
the tree flourished and soon produced the most stunning
spring blossom, followed by a bumper harvest of exceptional
apples in late autumn.
