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 - Golden Harvey

My favourite Apple. There are many mature trees on old farms with this variety in our area. They come late in the season, they last a long time, pests don't bother them very much (I believe becaus of how hard they are), and the taste is sharp and tangy. more >>

Apple - Kerry Pippin

My Kerry Pippen, a graft from seedsaver farm in Decorah, Iawa, is about five years old, going to be a heavy bearer, and appears to be fire blight immune and cedar apple rust immune.... so far. Waiting to see about scab, none so far and no mildew yet either. more >>

Apple - Snow Sweet

I am very happy with the Snow Sweet apple. The overall taste and texture is great. My three year old trees on B-118 Root stock produced 35 apples on average. I will be adding 100 more trees next spring. more >>
