👅 What Does It Taste Like
Here is my review of this apple. Categories are on a scale of 1-10.
🍎 What are Cherry Cox's Orange Pippin Best For?
It definitely has the flavor of the original. But I found this apple to be less tart and more sweet than it's original. A very good out of hand eating experience! Some say it has a cherry-like flavor, but I didn't really dedicate it.
I would bake with these apples for sure just as I would with the original Cox.
