Little Pax is a late-season English dessert apple. The apples usually ripen in October and will keep in a refrigerator or cold shed well into the new year.
Although discovered only recently, its pretty bell-like "pearmain" shape, and speckled red-flushed skin are very reminiscent of the classic 19th century English apples. The rich sweet aromatic flavours also hark back to the Victorian era. The flesh is crisp but not dense, so this is an easy apple to eat.
Little Pax is also characterised by its unusually prolific spring blossom.
All pot-grown trees are suitable for planting out in the garden, some are suitable for growing in containers.

Little Pax is easy to grow, but as might be expected from an apple variety from the Isle of Wight, it likes a long growing season to achieve its attractive red colouration.
This is a naturally productive variety, and as a result fruit size can tend to be small - this is easily addressed by thinning the fruitlets at the end of May after the blossom has finished.
Advice on fruit tree pollination.
Little Pax was planted as a seedling tree in the gardens of St. Cecilia's Abbey, Ryde, Isle of Wight. Its parentage is unknown, although it displays the typical bell-like "Pearmain" shape associated with several Victorian varieties such as Adam's Pearmain.
