Apple Laxton Superb

Apple Laxton Superb

Bred in the early 20th century with Cox’s Orange Pippin as one of its parents, dessert Apple Laxton Superb has Cox-like characteristics, but is far better adapted to cold, exposed areas. The fruit is medium-sized, round, greenish-yellow with red streaks and a deep red flush, slightly russeted. The flesh is white and firm, with a sweet, aromatic flavour, though in poor years the flavour may not be so good. Fairly vigorous tree and a heavy cropper, though with a tendency to biennial bearing as the tree ages; fruit should be thinned to minimise this. Spur-bearer, and a good pollinator. Resistant to canker, but susceptible to scab. Good keeper.
