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 - Kiku

Kiku was a new variety to me, I saw it in my local Kroger store and decided to try it. I had never experienced " love at first bite" until now. The sweetest apple I have ever eaten, right amount of cruch and the texture, perfect. I returned to purchase more, but to my dismay, they were out and don't know when they will get next supply. more >>

Apple - Lord Lambourne

Picked mine off a small tree at Wisley and was blown away by the taste - slightly acidic, but a lovely background sweetness too. Crispy and crunchy too. Nice skin. Perfect for kids as not too enormous. When I have a large garden in my next dream home, I'll be planting some Lord Lambournes, I think. more >>

Apple - Newtown Pippin

I have yet to taste a better apple. Tight crisp flesh, tart with just the right amount of sweet, and an wine-like complex flavor profile. I grow this in LA, where people say you can't grow it. And since my tree's in a pot (I don't have my own land), I make the pilgrimage to Oak Glen, CA to buy more Newtown Pippins because I can't produce enough for my taste! I really like Cuyama Orchards' "Pink Lady" apples so I look forward to tracking down their Newtown Pippins if they grow that variety as well. more >>
