Cherry Cox Apple
Malus domestica 'Cherry Cox'
Put this Cherry on top - of your list of apple trees! A medium-size, round, deep red apple that is consistently productive and has excellent flavor. From Denmark, it is a sport of the fabled Cox's Orange Pippin. More highly-colored than the original COP, but still has that complex flavor and dense texture that makes its parent so popular.
It is easy to grow, somewhat disease resistant and ripens late, in early October here in the PNW. The sturdy tree has a compact, spreading growth habit. It blooms early-mid season, bloom category 2, pollinizing other apples in categories 1-3. It is a reliable favorite here at Raintree.
