This must be the world's most revered apple, originating in Buckinghamshire England in 1825, thought to be an offspring of Ribston Pippin. An attractive strip yellow/orange skin on a yellow background with the charateristic cox's russet around the collar. Crisp juicy flesh when ripe, with a richness that is difficult to describe except it has all the qualities that make it amazing and memorable.
Sweet, acid, with depth of flavour - a complex flavour that other apples are compared to: 'Oh yes, it tastes a bit like a cox's', and has become a benchmark against which all others are measured. Ours is the original Cox's who's seeds rattle when the ripe fruit is shaken. Stores well.
Note that this variety is grown on dwarfing root stocks as well.
