Kidd’s Orange Red was originally raised in New Zealand. It is a crisp juicy apple, but it needs a lot of warmth and sun to ripen properly. It is a triploid. That means it will need two diploid pollinators.

As Cox’s Orange Pippin is one of the parents, its flavour is excellent. It is a regular cropper and shows an attractive red colour when mature. It is a good keeping apple.

Picking time is early October and, provided it is kept in a cool place, it will keep until January. A great asset is that it is resistant to scab. It is therefore a good apple for the wetter counties in the South of England.
