Ellisons Orange is an early (c1905) cross of Cox's Orange Pippin, and without doubt one of the most significant Cox-style apples. Its depth and range of flavour are in the same league as its parent.
It likes well-drained soil. Any difficulty with drainage and canker is quite a problem. If you really like an apple of intense flavour and are able to pick it when it is just right from the maturity point of view, then this is the apple to go for. Aniseed flavour can become quite strong if kept over-long but is very mild if eaten straight from the tree.
