Spur-Bearing Apple Varieties

    7 responses

Nick starts with ...
Hi everyone,
Can anyone recommend some spur-bearing varieties of apples that can be trained as cordons on an east-facing wall? Im planning to plant 2 or so, so it doesnt matter if they are self fertile or self sterile.

Cox's is v. site specific . In Sydney it produces a very ordinary fruit;Ive had better apples growing on rail line margins.

A Cox's should do well in Altona. Just remember they're known as being the worst apple for attracting pests. They seem to get every disease going, but , as Jason says, a beautiful cooking apple. A bit tart for eating IMHO.

Cooking!:?!@ :) lol It's supposed to be one of the very best eating apples and I'll agree with that. Easy to cure a tart apple, just leave it on the tree longer :)?

I have fond memories of eating Cox's Orange Pippin as a kid in England. It is sweet, not tart, with a distinctive flavour. I do miss it.

My favourite now is Gala or Royal Gala. Someone said Cox was a parent - is this right? It has a similiar flavour.

I really like red delicious and I was overjoyed to find out they are a spur-bearing type (apparently most apples are). I find red delicious is my favourite because it is crisp, sweet but not too sweet or sour and has an almost watery flavour.
