Missed the boat on this one, but Sunset is a good Cox-like apple which is less troublesome to grow. Ours produces a lovely crop - now in year 5.
we were also advised to remove all the fruit in the year after planting our new fruit trees, and only allow a few the next year, to give them a chance to establish strong roots. Seems to have paid dividends here.
