A British native eating apple that can be consumed straight from the tree, Malus domestica Laxton's Superb is a heavy-cropping, late-season, dessert variety dating from 1897. The tree produces pink-tinged white blossoms in spring. The fruit is greenish-yellow with rosy red flushing and striping in early autumn, firm and sweet to eat.

Laxton's Superb is partially self-fertile, in pollination group 4, vigorous but with a tendency to biennial bearing.

Available on M26, semi-dwarfing rootstock, which makes it suitable for smaller gardens and with appropriate care can even be grown in a large container. Other rootstocks and sizes available in store.
