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 characteristic 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.
As we grow it on other rootstocks, be sure that you want it as a Step-over.
