The comprehensive resource for apples and orchards

Welcome to Orange Pippin

If you are interested in apple varieties and orchards you have come to the right place. Our website aims to be the most comprehensive resource for apples and orchards:

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 - Summer Rambo

Purchased from Heyser Farms, Colesville, Md. on July 25th. Tart with little apple flavor, these did not make a good pie. While my standard 50-55 minutes wasn't long enough for this cultivar - ten minutes more would have improved it - there's only so much one can do with a so-so apple. more >>

Apple - Laxton's Superb

Mine is a very old tree, so old that I cut it to the ground about 20 years ago and it came up strong! Now crops every two years. Bumper crop this year 2014. more >>

Apple - Grimes Golden

I grew up on a small orchard, and started one of my own about 15 years ago. Grimes Golden was my mother's favorite, so I planted her a tree. When I got my first taste, 11 years later, it was the best Apple I had ever eaten. I now use them to make the best apple butter I've ever tasted. If I can find another tree or two, I'll be planting more. more >>

Apple - Stayman

I absolutely love love love this Apple. I live in central jersey just outside of Trenton, and have several you-pick-farms where I can get this Apple. Its never ready here until Oct. It's Crisp, juicy, and tart-sweet, it makes the greatest Baker for pie, holds up well, and the best applesauce by far. The farm I go to calls them Stamen Winesap. I love a cold one from the fridge, and a sprinkle of salt on it. They last till spring in my spare refrigerator. I also make dried chips from them. Mmmm! I can also get them in my local supermarket., but not year round. more >>
