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 - Winesap

I have been able to get Winesap and Northern Spy Apples at a Girard Penna Orchard. Both are my favorite old time fall apple. Both are getting hard to find locally as people want "red apples". more >>

Apple - Snow Sweet

The flavor is very good, comparable to Jonagold but not quite as sweet. Texture firm, crisp, juicy. The inside is very white. The only downside is that the skin is a bit tough and/or bitter, though not nearly as much as red delicious. I prefer Jonagolds and Cameos, but this is still a very nice juicy apple; I would never turn it down. more >>
