Cox SF, James Grieve, Katy (Family) Apple Family

Description: Cox Self Fertile, James Grieve and Katy are grafted onto the same stem to produce a family apple. All of these varieties will cross pollinate each other.

Cox Self Fertile – Eating.  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.

James Grieve – Cooking, eating and juice. A well known, well flavoured early dessert apple. Red flush stripes over pale green with a creamy white, juicy, rather soft flesh. Excellent refreshing flavour and a reliable cropper. 

Katy – Eating. A very attractive, early dessert apple. The fruit is an overall bright scarlet with flecks and broken stipes of deeper colour. An early fruit that is firm and juicy, fine-textured and has a pleasant strawberry-like flavour. Heavy and regular cropping and an excellent pollinator variety. A good choice for northern gardens.
