The wonderful thing about apples is that new varieties sometimes naturally occur for one reason or another. Sometimes only slight variations can take place. That is the case with the Cherry Cox's Orange Pippin. It is considered a sport variety. It is different enough to be given a different name but still very similar to the original. It was discovered in Denmark during the 1950s. The original Cox's Orange Pippin has been a popular apple in the UK for decades. The Cherry variety has has more red coloring in it's skin.
My Experience with this Apple (Rating Scale 1-10)
Tartness : 4
Apple Flavor: 8
Overall Feeling: 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.
