Richly flavored connoisseurs favorite. More productive and easier to grow than Cox Orange Pippin: much lower incidence of cracking, consistently better flavor and quality in hot summer climates. Reddish orange stripes over greenish yellow ground color, some russeting. Yellowish flesh is firm and juicy. Good keeper. Small but vigorous tree with long, weeping branches. Early, heavy thinning required to prevent alternate bearing. Resistant to mildew and scab. Laxton Superb x Cox Orange Pippin, from England, introduced in 1945.
