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 - Hampshire

I first tasted this apple at Morgan Orchard in Union, WV. I picked one up to snack on and ended up turning back to the orchard to get more. They have very few trees of it and unfortunately haven't often been able to get a saleable crop. It is a great apple when you can find it. more >>

Just tried a Bonnie Best and it is an excellent apple! Have never heard of this variety before but, if you're a Honey Crisp fan, this is it's equal! more >>
