A classic English Apple, often regarded as the finest of all dessert apples, remains unsurpassed for its richness and complexity of flavor!
Cox Orange Pippin Apple Tree (Malus 'Cox's Orange Pippin') has a striking, attractive orange-red coloring and is definitely a superb looking and extremely tasty Apple. Its medium-sized fruit has yellow skin blushed with orange-red and striped with crimson brown. Turning redder the longer they remain on the tree.
This chance seedling has been growing since the 19th century and does well in cool summers and coastal areas.
Grown for cider, cooking, and eating. The fine-textured, creamy white flesh ripens mid-fall to early winter and will not tolerate extreme cold, heat or low humidity. A heavy bearing variety, you'll have a good crop in no time!
Sweet, slightly tart and sometimes described as almost spicy, the flesh is creamy-yellow, firm and juicy with a crisp texture. This is not just a tasty fruit, but aromatic as well! Often paired with both savory recipes, it has been noted as pairing excellently with pork dishes.
Create incredible pies and tarts, pastries and other baked recipes! Often used in England to make chutney, your jams, apple butter and preserves will gain some vintage flavor with these versatile apples that puree beautifully! Juice or create your own cider, or simply eat right off the tree!
This upright, spreading tree has lovely deciduous foliage with a touch of fall color. In fall, it is covered in pure white, cup-shaped flowers in mid and late spring, followed by first-class, juicy dessert apples for harvesting in early to mid-October.
One neat feature is when shaken, the seeds rattle inside the ripe fruit!
Gorgeous trees on their own as specimens and accent plants, the beautiful spring bloom of these fantastic mid-sized trees are suitable for average-sized gardens. Home orchards and edible landscaping are great for these vintage trees!
Plant near your garden and patio to provide shade and ornamental blooms. Anchor large plantings with these beautiful trees and enjoy watching your family pick their own apples each September!
Why not plant a specimen tree near a window to enjoy its beautiful look from close up? The pretty spring flowers and developing fruit are so interesting. Keep things easy for yourself by removing any lawn and placing mulch underneath Apple trees.
Nothing is like a home-grown sweet and juicy apple straight from the tree and warmed by the sunshine! Picked a bit earlier, these take on a more sweet-tart flavor and store nicely and firmer for baking and preserves. Pick later and they're sweet and fantastic for fresh eating and sauces!
Plant long rows of these lovely trees along your drive or the side of your property. Providing beautiful privacy and beauty in the spring, summer and fall!
We bet your family and friends will certainly help you enjoy that fresh fruit! Create a hedges by planting several varieties 15 feet apart on center. Measure from the center of one to the center of the next.
Fantastic dual-purpose gardening, fragrant flowers, handsome foliage, a touch of fall color and wonderful landscape form, you won't go wrong including a modest-sized Apple tree into your garden plans this year!
Save room for one of Cox Orange Pippins pollinators, an early-blooming variety, it works best with Fuji, Granny Smith and Honeycrisp Apples!
Fruit trees need full sun, 8 plus hours a day of sunshine provide the most blooms and the largest yields.
Morning sun is especially good for fruit trees. The drying power of the morning sun will quickly dry off the foliage. Keep the leaves dry when you can.
Hardy in USDA hardiness zones 4 through 9, these trees thrive throughout most of North America. Good disease resistance and low maintenance, this Apple variety is fantastic for the home gardener.
Moderate moisture needs, protect your investment and boost yields by not allowing your tree to endure drought at all. A thick layer of mulch over the root system insulates the roots from heat and cold, plus holds in more moisture!
Any well-drained soil and organically rich medium are great for these trees! If you need to improve drainage, create a raised garden bed to plant in. Mound up the soil to 18 inches high and 3 feet wide. Plant in that mound.
Prune in summer to keep the height where you want it. Tip prune to an outside-facing bud. These trees are often trained as Espalier and can be kept trained smaller for smaller yards!
Most pruning is done to keep the canopy open to increase air circulation, reducing fungal issues and disease.
