Apple Kidd's Orange Red

Malus domestica Kidd's Orange Red

Apple Kidd's Orange Red can genuinely compete with the renowned Cox's Orange Pippin in terms of flavor. This apple leans towards sweetness, yet distinguishes itself by offering a rich complexity of flavors. Its texture is a delightful blend of crispness and chewiness, with each bite unleashing a cascade of juice and nuanced taste.

While Kidd's Orange Red has found favor in English gardens, its roots trace back to New Zealand in the early 20th century. J.H. Kidd, an admirer of the English Cox's Orange Pippin (which happens to be one of Kidd's Orange Red's parent varieties), was the visionary behind its cultivation.

The tree's growth is not only robust but also aesthetically pleasing, Apple Kidd's orange Red is adorned with crimson pink blossoms in Spring that emit a captivating rose-like fragrance. Primarily savored as a fresh eating apple but also makes high-quality sweet apple juice, featuring a satisfyingly thick texture.
