Laxton's Superb Apple on G.935 (Spring 2021)


A late-season Cox's Orange Pippin progeny.

Laxton's is a Cox's progeny that is significantly easier to grow than its parent. It is a very vigorous, spreading tree that crops heavily but tends to biennialism. It will need diligent thinning. It is resistant to powdery mildew and canker, but susceptible to fireblight and scab. Partially self-fertile, Laxton's will acheive better productivity in the presence of a pollenizer.

This handsome late-season apple is medium to large, round, and slightly conic. The skin is a greenish yellow blushed dull red with darker streaks. The creamy flesh is firm and fine textured. An excellent dessert apple, it has a sweet, subacid, aromatic Cox's-like flavor. Harvest this apple as soon as it is ripe, as it drops readily. It will store well for about two months.

Bred by the Laxton Bros. in Bedford England in 1897, Laxton's was introduced in 1922. It received the Award of Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society in 1919 and a First Class Certificate in 1921. It is also the parent of Tydeman's Late Orange and Merton Pearmain.
