Kidd’s Orange Red is a classic English apple. Named after an amateur New Zealand apple breeder, J.H. Kidd, in the 1920s.
The thin skin is yellow with a pink blush as it ripens, turning to an orange-red flush by the time it is ready for picking. Irregular light patches of russet can give it a marbled appearance.
Flesh is a cream colour, dense and firm with a sweet honey flavour.
A good garden apple but not a heavy cropper.
