Apple Sunset

Apple Sunset

Bred in Kent in the early 20th century, Apple Sunset is a mid-season dessert apple with most of the virtues of its parent Cox’s Orange Pippin, and few of the disadvantages – an ideal garden apple even in northern areas. The fruit is small to medium-sized, with golden skin streaked and blushed with orange-red and with a little russeting. The flesh is crisp, with a good sweet/acid balance and is Cox-like in flavour, particularly in warm summers. Compact spur-bearing tree, disease-resistant, and particularly easy to maintain. Reliable, heavy cropper; thin for larger fruit, but there is no tendency to biennial bearing. Notably resistant to scab. Holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
