Kidd's Orange Red is named in honour of New Zealand orchard owner and 20th century apple breeder James Hutton Kidd. Kidd's Orange Red is something really special, some might say a benchmark; it is undoubtedly an outstanding English style apple.

It has complex, aromatic flavours with hints of honey and the thin yellow skin is flushed with orange-red as well as some patches of russet. Its slightly flattened shape which also lends to its appeal.

The dense flesh has a creamy colour giving it a firm bite and although the Cox's Orange Pippin is its parent it is much sweeter, thanks to its other parent, the Red Delicious.

The tree grows very attractively and its crimson pink blossom is a very wonderful feature. Although known primarily as an apple for eating fresh, Kidd’s Orange Red also produces a very high quality and very sweet apple juice with a pleasing texture.

Kidd's Orange Red is a late season variety and is ready for pickling from mid-October. A good choice for gardens because of its ease of growing and reliability of cropping but also because of the tolerance to temperate climates.
