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 - Kanzi

Found these by accident. What a scrumptious surprise! I find their crisp crunch reminds me of an apple-pear cross. The Kanzi's taste is clean, tart, & very sweet (usually eat Granny Smiths). I highly recommend & wish they'd stay stocked at my market as they've become my fav apple!  more >>

Apple - Haralson

Produced young; 3 or 4 years. Great flavor! Fruit size is good and quantity prolific. Our late frosts which nip the blooms challenge most apple trees but not the Haralson! Vigorous and disease resistant. Love this tree! more >>

Apple - Rubinette Rosso

There were not any tasting notes for this variety, and little info. This is a fantastic variety, medium in size, with crisp flesh and a delicate sweet taste. It's a low acid, refreshing sweet flavor that lingers like watery honey at the back of your palette. more >>

Apple - Pink Lady

Someone from where I work stated he put in an orchard Of Braeburn apples and plans on turning them into 'Pink Lady 's." I am a bit confused. I know the history of the Pink Lady apple and own 6 trees of the Pink Lady I specially ordered and they are thriving in Illinois. How can he turn his trees into Pink Lady's? more >>

Apple - Rubinette

We grow over two hundred varieties of apples in our orchard. Rubenette is the best eating apple we have and sell at our roadside stand. Although the size is nedium small it is not a distraction, however we are testing chemical thinning sprays and have noticed Rubinette on M-9 rootstock produces a half size larger apple than on seedling rootstock. We are testing to grow this apple on the more precocious rootstocks to improve size. As a commercial grower, we have access to sixe improving chemicals that do help, unfortunstely these products are not available tp backyard growers.We have no pest issues specific to this apple.Here at Feul 1908 Famoly Orchard we intent to grow Rubennette on a anall commercial scale. more >>
