Our website is named after England's most famous apple variety - Cox's Orange Pippin - widely regarded as the finest of all dessert apples.
'Pippin' is an old English word derived from the French word for 'seedling'. The same word can be seen in the modern French for a plant nursery or garden centre - 'pepiniere'. Like many old apple varieties Cox's Orange Pippin was discovered as a chance seedling.

Apple - LodiThese trees were in the yard of the house we bought 30 years ago. Some years, they have a bumper crop, and some years not many apples at all. They bruise easily, so you have to pick them rather than let them fall when ripe. Super for applesauce, OK for baking, too tart for eating raw. Some apples get very big in good years. more >>

At this stage of the window terms apples can be floury and disappointing, but Cripps Pink is beautifully firm and the flavour is wonderful, tangy and sweet, similar to a Braeburn or Granny Smith. I am thrilled to find it and considering planting one :-) more >>
