Owner's commentsThe tree produced poorly here and although the first two small crops had some very good tart apples, they also had some very poor ones. The third crop had no good apples, only soft, cracking ones.
This was the variety that got me interested in growing apples, and I am glad that I tried growing it even though it is apparently not suited for this climate.
Others in the Cox family that grew poorly and produced bad fruit here are Ribston Pippin, Suntan and Saint Cecilia. On the other hand, Laxton's Fortune has produced three crops of very good apples here so far.
