    This fan-trained maiden tree is ideal for growing against a sunny wall, where it will produce white flowers in spring, and juicy dessert apples, which are ready to harvest in October. Arguably the best British eating apple, Cox’s Orange Pippin is partialy self fertile so does not need a pollination partner, but for a bumper crop, it can be grown with another apple from Flowering Group C.

  • Garden care: Keep the base of the tree weed free, fertilise at the beginning of each year and water regularly during hot, dry spells. Remove damaged or crossing branches during the dormant season

  • Pollination Information: This apple belongs to pollination group C, so you will need to plant one other different variety of apple to guarantee cross pollination, and a subsequent bumper crop. Ideally this should come from the same pollination group, however it is possible to use one from group B or D as well.
