Epicure

Laxton Epicure

Laxton Epicure

Its full name is Laxton Epicure. Like Ellison’s Orange, one of its parents is Cox Orange Pippin. It is a late August sweet apple and does not need a lot of room. In the garden of my neighbour it pollinates Bramley’s Seedling cooking apple very well. However it does help to have another diploid variety planted near it, as the Bramley tree is unable to pollinate the Epicure. Without doubt it is a good apple for August time.
It is suitable for planting up North, as it has a good frost resistance. A healthy tree, regular cropper and the children at home for the summer holidays love to eat it.
