Laxton's Fortune

Eating

Also called simple Fortune, it should not be confused with the more recent American variety of that name. Laxton's Fortune was one of a number of new varieties developed by the Laxton Brothers Nursery in the UK in the early 1900s and grown commercially on a small scale. It remains a popular garden variety in the UK, but is a noted biennial bearer. It is a useful substitute for Cox's Orange Pippin (one of its parents), having some of the aromatic flavour of that variety but much easier to grow.
