Cox, Queen Apple on G.210 (Spring 2022)


A self-fertile clone of Cox's Orange Pippin. Also known as Queen Cox.

Queen Cox is a self-fertile clone of Cox's Orange Pippin that comes closer to the flavor of the original than any of its other offspring, but without some of the problems that can plague Cox's. It does, however, have poor disease resistance; it is susceptible to canker, cedar-apple rust, mildew, and scab. Perfect for a small garden, this tree will crop reliably without any additional pollenizer present. It produces insufficient amounts of viable pollen to be used as a pollenizer for other trees.

As with Cox's Orange, apple is red-green with an orange flush, but the fruit size is somewhat larger. The flesh is crisp, sharp, sweet, and aromatic. It ripens mid-September in upstate NY, with Cox's. This is the perfect apple for the Cox's Orange Pippin fan who wants a slightly easier tree.

Queen Cox was discovered on the Appleby Fruit Farm in Berkshire, England in 1953.
