Tree register

Our Fruit tree register has details of more than 11,000 trees registered by their owners, including blossom and harvest records.

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', and like many old apple varieties Cox's Orange Pippin was discovered as a chance seedling.

  • Apple - Arkansas Black

    14 May 2022 
    will this apple hang on the tree for storage
  • Apple - Roxbury Russet

    10 May 2022 
    excited to try this one, so far a vigorous grower/performer. I grafted a scion into an existing Liberty Apple tree, which is an absolute rockstar! Got blooms on the Ticket this year, grafted about 2 years ago.
  • Apple - Sundowner

    30 Apr 2022 
    This variety has a interesting complex flavour that is very appealing. Crisp white flesh. Pick fresh from tree as leaves deteriorate and the cold sets in. Fairly vigorous growing tree.
  • Plum - Excalibur

    29 Apr 2022 
    I have 50 Excalibur Plums. The trees are very vigorous and don't crop heavy but the fruit is divine, as good as Avalon and one of my top 3 plums
  • Apple - Bonza

    28 Apr 2022 
    Nice accurate write up of Bonza. Also a reliable bearing variety, not an overly vigorous grower. My grandfather discovered Bonza in Batlow. I grow apples chemical free in Batlow and sell my apples at Canberra Region Farmers Markets at Mitchell. My business is called Bonza Apple Shop
