The Cox, or in full the Cox's orange pippin, is a crisp sweet eating apple with a red-tinged skin (the ‘orange’ in the name refers to the skin colour, not the apple's taste). It was originally propagated some time in the first half of the nineteenth century by a Mr R. Cox, a brewer and amateur gardener of Colnbrook, near Slough, and first distributed in 1850 by Charles Turner.
