apple 'Queen Cox'


'Queen Cox' is a late-season dessert apple, a richer-coloured selection from 'Cox's Orange Pippin', with all its complex, aromatic flavour, and its need for favourable conditions to crop well. It is self-fertile, but will crop better with a partner in pollination group 3. Season of use is from mid-autumn to mid-winter
