Jupiter (apple)

Jupiter is a modern cultivar of domesticated apple which was developed in England, by crossing a Cox's Orange Pippin with a Starking Delicious apple. According to the Orange Pippin website, it is one of the best Cox-style apples, with somewhat a more robust flavor, but more importantly, much more disease resistant. It is a heavy cropper and has a tendency to biennial bearing if not thinned.[1] It is also frost resistant,[2] and earned the Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society in 1993.[2] [1]
