A sport of Cox Orange Pippin bred to have more disease resistance than the original.  Sunset was raised in Ightham in Kent from a pip of Cox Orange Pippin and was named in 1933.  Trees are hardy but have a more compact growing habit than the original.  Cropping is reliable and regular, thin the fruitlets to achieve apples of a decent size.  The apples have the aromatic, flavour that is characteristic of its parent and are juicy and refreshing.  The blossom alone is a reason to plant this superb variety, being very ornamental and pink in colour.  Self-fertile variety so no pollination partner required.
