All about apples, pears, plums, and cherries - and orchards where they are grown

Welcome to Orange Pippin

If you are interested in apple varieties, pears, cherries or plums, or orchards where these fruits are grown, you have come to the right place.

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 - Lodi

Reading up about all the summer varieties and I think this matches what is growing in my yard. My first experience with a summer apple and it's had me guessing! we're trying to graft Spartan onto a few branches as I much prefer it and hate to lose the incredible root system of a 50 year old tree.. thanks for the tips on how to process the fruit. Tart for sure and the mealy splitting is really gross. more >>

Apple - Dorsett Golden

Nice and sweet with a bit of tart if picked while still a bit green. Mine look much more like Golden Delicious than the photos. Very short shelf life. more >>
