    My Kerry Pippen, a graft from seedsaver farm in Decorah, Iawa, is about five years old, going to be a heavy bearer, and appears to be fire blight immune and cedar apple rust immune.... so far. Waiting to see about scab, none so far and no mildew yet either.

    I had the great fortune of encountering this variety while visiting family in southern Surrey. They were a bit on the small side and not very showy in terms of colour. I could never have imagined their wonderous flavour based their humble exterior. They remain the shining star at the core of my greatest apple-eating moment. Each one was lightly crisp, with a bright sweetness that I found profoundly satisfying. I must admit, that day, and those apples, awakened some new appreciation of apples within me... and for that I am forever thankful.

    Excellent flavour, won the taste test at Fridays Market when we had 6 varieties of heritage apple for sale/ taste. Crunchy and sweet, good lunch box size, regular cropper. We have some bitter pit, but the soil is a very high pH.
