Cox's Orange Pippin Apple Tree Pollination
Cox's Orange Pippin Apple Trees are not self-fertile. You will need to plant another variety to achieve fruiting. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...
Planting & Care
1. Planting Find a place in your yard that has well-drained soil and gets direct sunlight for 6 to 8 hrs a day. When you're ready to plant, dig a hole that's twice the size of the root ball. Then, place your tree, back fill the soil and water to settle the roots. Add a layer of mulch to retain moisture and prevent weed growth. You may also stake your tree to encourage upright growth. Place 3 to 4 wooden stakes, that are 1 to 2 feet taller than the tree, around it. Use garden wire or twine to loosely tie the stakes around the tree.
2. Watering: Depending on how much rain your area gets, you may need to water your tree every 10 days. If you get less than an inch of rain every 10 days, water the soil around the root line. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the soil about 2 or 3 inches down. If it's dry here, it's time to water.
3. Fertilizing: It's best to fertilize in late winter or early spring. As an alternative, you can buy commercial fertilizer produced for fruiting trees and follow the instructions.
4. Pruning: Prune your tree when it is dormant in late winter by removing all dead leaves and branches. It is best to prune the branches in such a way that the entire tree receives an equal amount of light.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Great! Arrived healthy. Also they didn’t look sad or puny. They were actually somewhat larger than I expected
The tree arrived safely and in great shape. It’s in the ground and seems to be doing well. Will have to follow up in a bit to see how it does up here in Montana.
***’s Orange Pippin Apple Tress
My tree arrived promptly, nicely packaged, but some of the leaves had yellowed. I followed the instructions for planting, and now, several weeks later, all the leaves have greened and it is obviously growing and happy. Thanks, Fast Growing Trees!
