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 - Empire

Nothing else compares! I, too, am addicted to the crunchy, sweet taste. When I mange to find them in season, no one else in the house is allowed to eat my stash. I didn't realise there were others out there like me who had the 'Empire Addiction'. I can't find anything else that compares. more >>

Plum - Avalon

Absolutely amazing crop in only its second season. Huge to say the least and the flavour is to die for. Says it all. more >>

Apple - Sunrise

Just picked some up from the Kanata farmer's market. Mildly sweet, incredibly crunchy and crisp. Slight hint of crabapple-like tartness. Appearances vary, roughly 2/3 green with the last 1/4 a blush of red. Would recommend for folks with low sugar tolerances as the sugar content is not too sweet (just right in my opinion). more >>

Apple - Pixie

Nice apple but VERY susceptible to disease in our warm wet climate. more >>

Apple - Cameo

This became my favorite apple, even above Honey Crisp, the minute I tasted it. It has the best flavor (I think your description is just wrong on this!) sweet and crisp and nothing at all like pears, which I hate. It will last a LONG time, staying crisp and sweet in my basement, not even wrapped individually with newspaper or paper towels, until the last one in the half-bushel box. I LOVE these apples! more >>
