Please recommend disease free, sweet eating and also cooking apples trees for location in County Monaghan. I have finally thrown the towel in on trying to grow Cox Pippins despite spraying for scab etc. at recommended times. Little or no success with them after 6 years

‘Cox’s Orange Pippin’ in general does not do well in Ireland, too cool and damp.

Try ‘Discovery’, ‘Lord Lambourne’ and ‘Winston’ in order of eating, and ‘Bramley’s Seedling’ is still the best cooking apple.
