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 - Pacific Rose™

This apple is good - like the sweetness of it, but has a more powdery consistency in the bite than the Honeycrisp. Prefer the crispness of the Honeycrisp over the Pacific Rose. more >>

Apple - Autumn Gold

I discovered this apple last year at my local co-op, and fell in love. Firm, crisp, juicy (but not overly so) with an almost cinnamon aftertaste. Sweet, but not overly so. The fruit man said that it's a late fall apple, so they should be back soon. Fingers crossed! more >>

Apple - Macoun

Be Warned: the Macoun will ruin your taste for any other apple. The juice, the mixture of tart and sweet, the way whole pieces chunk off as you bite's like heaven with a stem. If only they shipped/kept well..... more >>

Apple - Liberty

Makes beautiful pink applesauce because of the skin and flesh color if you include the skin. The insect and disease resistance is a plus in my organic orchard. Planted in 1983 on supposedly M7A Rootstock but it's pretty big for that. more >>
