Description:

 

Laxton's Superb is essentially a Cox-style apple, but with an interesting twist in flavour inherited from its other parent Wyken Pippin, which had been popular since the 18th century but is now little known. The shape is much more upright than the flattened signature of Cox, and is reminiscent of Adams Pearmain. The colour is dull red flush over green - attractive in a subdued way.Vigorous, speading tree producing rather straggling branches and whippy new growth. Young trees produce regular heavy crops but older trees tend to be biennial.Medium sized, round-conical fruit. Purplish red flush and stripes over a greenish yellow skin. Some russet patches. White, crisp, juicy flesh. Sweet but with variable flavour.

 

Pollination:

 

It is partially self-fertile.

For better fruiting plant a compatible partner:

Braeburn, Cornish Aromatic, Discovery, Elstar, Gala, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Greensleeves, Grenadier, Howgate Wonder, James Grieve, Katy, Malus Evereste, Malus Golden Hornet, Malus John Downie, Pitmaston Pine Apple, Red Devil, Spartan, Worcester Pearmain
