Malus domestica 'Ellison's Orange'

Still a favorite of English organic growers because of its outstanding flavor, heavy cropping and resistance to scab. The sweet/tart, anise-like, crisp, juicy and aromatic flavor make it a great choice for the organic orchard. Bred as a Cox's Orange Pippin X Calville Blanc in Lincolnshire, England about 1904. It has a soft orange background with unusual red stripes.

Somewhat prone to biennial bearing; thin early heavy crops completely to avoid the subsequent exhaustion this tree can experience. A little extra care goes a long way! Ripens early-midseason.

Fantastic!

Purchased our second ellison s orange tree in the spring of 2020, arrived healthy. Couldn t be more be pleased with the growth in its first season. These are the best apples I have ever tasted, highly aromatic and flavorful. Has the tendency of alternate bearing but that can be curbed by thinning the fruit.
