A red flushed early season dessert apple with a brisk summer fruit flavour.
Origin: Bedfordshire UK, 1904
Pollination: Laxton's Fortune is partially self-fertile and would produce some crop without a pollinator but would benefit considerably from a pollinator.
History and description of Laxton's Fortune
Raised by Laxton Bros, Bedford in 1904 from a Cox’s Orange Pippin X Wealthy. Introduced 1931. Received RHS First
Class Certificate in 1948. Once grown commercially in the UK.
Medium sized fruit. Short-round-conical shape. Distinct rounded ribs at
apex. Red flush and short, broad, broken bright red stripes over a pale
green background becoming pale yellow. Some russet patches. Creamy
white flesh, moderately firm, juicy, sweet and lightly aromatic. May lack
taste if picked too early, so best left on the tree as long as possible to
colour and develop flavour.
A tree of moderate vigour. Hardy. Good cropper. Biennial bearer.
