Jupiter apple


A juicy eating apple with a flavour similar to Cox. It has greenish-yellow skin which is flushed and striped with reddish-orange. It is a triploid, which means that it is a poor pollinator. It was raised br Dr F Alston at East Malling Research Station in Kent in 1966 as a cross between Cox's Orange Pippin and Starking Delicious and received the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit in 1993. This mid-season variety is harvested from early October in South-East England and is at its best between late October and January.
