Apples - Cox (English Orange Pippin)

about

English Cox Orange Pippin Apples are in season in the UK from late summer to late Autumn, though available from store or imported all year round (we do not touch air freight).The Cox apple is the classic English apple, often regarded as the finest of all dessert apples, and the inspiration for this website. It arose in England in the 19th century as a chance seedling, and has inspired apple lovers ever since. It remains unsurpassed for its richness and complexity of flavour, but is not as popular as its supermarket competitors, not least because it is relatively difficult to grow.
