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 - Lodi

Excellent apple for applesauce that many older people I know seek out. Extremely tangy/acidic, but not quite puckery sauce - perfect IMO. I hope to grow a tree, but sounds susceptible to rust, unfortunately. more >>

No better apple. Period. One bite and you're forever hooked! Superb apple flavor, excellent texture and the most amazing fragrance! Fresh, cooked, baked . . . no matter. Awesome! more >>

Apple - Ambrosia

Best apple I've ever ate! Can't imagine what happened with the 2 that said "tasteless", maybe got some that weren't ripe? Or maybe lacking the ambrosia taste bud! Lol, try them again. more >>

Bought this apple in the organic part of Queen Victoria market in Melbourne. The apples were quite small, with a distinct, but not overly strong, taste. Good sour/sweet balance. more >>
