APPLE, SUNSET (Malus domestica Sunset)
Enlarge Picture Enlarge picture

 

Raised from a seedling of Cox's Orange Pippin about 1918 in Kent. Very heavy regular cropper, superb aromatic flavour, crisp and juicy, golden-yellow with orange-red flush. A smaller apple than Cox but as it is much easier to grow is widely grown as a garden variety. Suitable for colder areas and is more resistant to frost.

Season of Use: Nov-Dec Desert Fruit

Crab apples such as Golden Hornet and John Downie also are good pollinators for all apples. In areas where there are many apple trees already growing it may not be necessary to plant an extra pollinator.
