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 - BardseyMy tree was planted several years ago, and was "pruned" by a nasty rabbit, but has recovered and has its first apple this summer. It does well in this harsh climate. It is available in the US, and I recommend it highly to all loyal Welsh Americans! more >>

Apple - BountifulDefinitely good eater if left late season (mid October) but really of no distinct character so we use for apple juice base (75/25 Bountiful /Cox type).. Fantastic cropper... maybe 500 + last year but despite shaking many off for the first year it's having a rest... none for 2016 which us fine by us. Will give this handsome tree a feed this winter... up to now have just buried the odd dead rat under it ;) more >>

Plum - Ersinger FruhzwetscheErsinger is our first plum of 20 varieties. It's pleasantly sweet with only slight tang, plump-firm to soft with no bitterness or astringence in the skin, flavor-reminds me of soaked raisins, 95 percent freestone, a strong-growing tree that needs some branch thinning to keep out suspected brown rot. more >>
