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 flavor, simultaneously tangy and sweet.

As the name suggests, it is a late-season variety, ripening in the middle of October. 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.

How to grow

Tydeman's Late Orange is reliable and easy to grow, and makes an excellent alternative to Cox's Orange Pippin. Disease resistance is particularly good for a Cox-style apple.

Thin the fruitlets in early June to ensure better fruit size.

History

Developed by H.M. Tydeman at the famous East Malling Research Station in Kent, England, in the 1930s. It is derived from Laxton's Superb pollinated by Cox's Orange Pippin.
