Sunset is a popular Cox-style apple, which we recommend as one of the best alternatives to Cox’s Orange Pippin as it is much easier to grow. The parentage is not known but it is almost certainly a seedling of Cox. Disease resistance is far better, cropping is good and reliable, and it is self-fertile.

The flavour is balanced and sweet, with many of the aromatic qualities of Cox’s Orange Pippin. Sunset also has the attractive orange-flush so characteristic of Cox and other traditional English apples.
