The excellent variety raised by East Malling Research Station. The fruits are medium to large with a superb flavour that is similar to Cox. Crisp, juicy flesh that is covered by a very attractive skin finish of bright orange-red over a pale yellow background. The crop produced is very exceptional and, in official trials, has cropped three times more heavily than Cox, with a far higher grading of Class 1 fruit. For picking and eating from October, and will store well into the new year. Jupiter is a triploid variety, so needs pollinating by two other varieties, of which the choice is wide. Any mid season flowering variety is suitable such as James Grieve, Discovery, Charles Ross, Spartan, Sunset, Greensleeves, Redsleeves or flowering malus such as Golden Hornet, John Downie or Robusta. The very exceptional high quality crop of superb flavoured fruits has quickly established Jupiter as a favourite garden variety. Highly recommended. Excels on dwarfing rootstocks M27 and M9.
