Tydeman's Late Orange is a classic English Cox-style apple, with the attractive orange flush which is so typical of this type of apple. It has the Cox-style aromatic flavour, simultaneously tangy and sweet.

As the name suggests, it is a late-season variety, ripening in the middle of October in most areas. It can be kept until Christmas in a fridge or cold garage. Unlike Cox, it is not at its best when eaten straight from the tree, and is actually better if stored for a few weeks.
