Queen Cox Self-Fertile Apple
This patented self fertile clone has the flavor, mellow aftertaste and aroma of the famed Cox's Orange Pippin. Queen Cox sets bumper crops of delicious fruit each year, without a pollinizer, even when fruit set is poor on other Apple, including other Cox type Apples.
The fruit of Queen Cox is larger and the tree more disease resistant than Cox's Orange Pippin. The tree is 15% less vigorous than other Cox varieties. Fruit ripens in early September. The only reliably self fertile apple suitable for most American gardeners.
