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 - Red AstrachanI believe this is the apple tree we have on our farm. I have old pictures (pre-1940) that show this tree. more >>

Apple - Red DeliciousThis was and still is one of my favorite apples. There are a few things to note, however. They are best after the first frost and they have been picked and let set for one week. If you eat them off the tree before the frost they actually have a slight bitter taste. After the frost they are very sweet but too crisp. Let them set for that week and they are mild with a great flavor. I have tried the ones in the Grocery store after reading some of these reviews. They are terrible. I have to believe they have been picked too early for shipping purposes. more >>

Gage - Early TransparentLovely sweet Gage/Plum, our tree bears well but is a little variable in cropping. Lighter flavor than Victoria more Green Gage like. Wasps love them presumably due to thin skins, also experience quite a lot of brown rot which you have to watch out for especially in the bunches. I would recommend this Gage. more >>

Apple - JonagoldThis is my favorite eating apple when it is fresh and my biggest disappointment when it has been offered after long storage in the grocery. I imagine that most of the negative comments are due to the cheap mistreated version of this great apple. more >>
