History and description of Cox's Pomona

Raised in about 1825 by Richard Cox of Colnbrook Lawn, Slough, Buckinghamshire, and introduced by Mr Smale, Nurseryman, Colnbrook c 1850. Said to be a seedling of Ribston Pippin.

A very attractive large fruit, flat-round and irregular. Broad, well rounded ribs. Very smooth greasy skin, pale greenish-yellow to yellow and up to three-quarters flushed orange red with fairly broad broken bright red stripes. The flesh is white, soft, juicy, and of a fine flavour. Crisp but quite sharp when eaten fresh and of fine flavour when cooked. Does not break up completely when cooked. Makes a good baked apple.

Moderately vigorous, upright-spreading tree. Produces spurs fairly freely. Produces regular good crops.
