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 - McIntosh

In southern California it's becoming progressively more difficult to find good Macs. Used to be all the markets carried them but now Albertsons and a few independents are the only places they can be found. A good mcintosh apple is eating pleasure, but availability in southern California is problematic. more >>

Apple - Jonagold

It sounds from the comments like this is not worth it from a supermarket. But, if you can find a farm with them, I think they are fantastic. I picked some this weekend, and they are honey sweet, with a little bit of a bite. They are huge!! I can barely finish one. I highly recommend this apple if you like Honeycrisps, but wish they were sweeter. Mine were crisp, more sweet than tart, and just plain tasty. I wish they kept longer so I could have picked more! more >>

Apple - Snow Sweet

Just discovered this apple at Fairfax City Farmer's Market (VA). Great flavor although a sweeter than my usual favorite (Macoun) which I have not found yet this year. Love that it is slow to brown when cut. I hope this newer variety becomes more widely available. more >>

Dang good! Just made apple sauce and crisp with these apples and in the spring I will be grafting this tree to add to my orchard. I had to add a little sugar so my two year old will eat it but still damn good apple more >>
