Ellisons Orange

Ellisons OrangeEllisons Orange is an early (c1905) cross of Cox's Orange Pippin, and without doubt one of the most significant Cox-style apples.  Its depth and range of flavour are in the same league as its parent.
Its uniqueness comes from the strange aniseed flavour, which can arise after picking - a facet of the Cox-family aromatic complexity which is not apparent in its parent. Ellisons Orange was developed from Cox's Orange Pippin by Rev. Ellison in Lincolnshire, England, at the start of the 20th century. Its other parent is believed to be one of the Calville varieties, originating in France and thought to be very old.
