Jupiter is a sweet dessert apple. This vigorous, triploid tree needs two pollinators. It is suitable for the north of the UK. It was introduced in 1973, a cross between Cox’s Orange Pippin and Starking Delicious. It is a Cox-style apple, with good flavour, heavy cropping, but with greater disease resistance than Cox. It needs to be thinned carefully because otherwise it has a tendency to biennial bearing.
