All about apples, pears, plums, and cherries - and orchards where they are grown

Eden apple

Eden is a cross between John Standish and Cox's Orange Pippin, and was released in the 1950s. Like Cox it is ripe in mid-September.

Not to be confused with the more modern Canadian variety of the same name.
