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 - Red Winesap

I like this apple between the green and ripe stage with its crispey tannery fast I also like it when it has mellowed and taken on the taste that gives its name more >>

Apple - Lodi

These trees were in the yard of the house we bought 30 years ago. Some years, they have a bumper crop, and some years not many apples at all. They bruise easily, so you have to pick them rather than let them fall when ripe. Super for applesauce, OK for baking, too tart for eating raw. Some apples get very big in good years. more >>
