Welsh Cox Apple
History & Discovery
At about 6 feet tall, Anne Jones was an imposing figure as Bangor's first motorised milk lady. In her garden at Goetre Bach, near Felinheli, Auntie Annie had a justifiably famous apple tree. She called it the "Cox Cymraeg". A medium sized eating apple with an excellent balance of sweetness and acidity with a Cox like flavour and aroma. In the 1940's, the council straightened out the A487 and Aunty Annie's house was flattened. She then moved 100 yards to one of the last remaining houses along with her apple tree and her husband Bob's budgies. The tree thrived in its new location until it was buried under the new A55 fifty years later. Fortunately one daughter tree survived nearby, allowing the continuation of this fantastic fruit tree.
Unlike the English Cox's Orange Pippin, it is easy to grow and disease resistant. Pick in October. Use November to February.

All fruit trees are grafted onto rootstocks. The rootstocks determine eventual tree size.
Bigger trees are more robust & produce more fruit, but take up more space.
Always choose a bigger rootstock if you need extra anchorage or your soil is in poor (very wet, dry or rocky). Small trees cannot compete with grass and weeds.
Select your rootstock by using the paypal button corresponding to the eventual size of tree you desire. You will have the option to select the number of trees you wish to order on the Paypal page.
