Cox’s Orange Pippin apple is the classic English apple. It was discovered in England in 19th century as a chance seedling. It is famous for its rich and complex flavour and considered to be one of the finest dessert apples. The fruit is small to medium-sized. It has yellow skin with orange-red blush and crisp, firm, very juicy and aromatic flesh. The flavour has hints of mango and orange. Cox’s Orange Pippin apple plant is an upright tree with spreading growth habit. Its vigorous and bushy growth can become difficult to control. The plant is sensitive and demanding with regard to soil and climate. It needs exceptional soil and adequate weather conditions to grow well. It prefers rich neutral soil, moist but well drained, and sheltered position in full sun. It is susceptible to diseases and doesn’t tolerate frost. The best flavour is achieved in cool maritime climate.

M26 is a semi-dwarfing rootstock (smaller than MM106) used for apple trees, particularly in orchards and home gardens. It produces trees 10-12 feet in height, making them easier to manage and harvest. M26 ensures early fruit production, good anchorage, and medium vigor. However, it requires staking during early years and is moderately susceptible to fire blight.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
