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.
