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 - Horse

My grandfather was born in Georgia in 1895. He once told me that if you had a Horse Apple tree and a Yates Apple tree you'd have all the apples you'd ever want. I used to have a Horse Apple tree and it made apples every year... until it died in a drought. In August when the apples were so hot you'd think they were going to bake on the tree, but one day they would reach perfection, and the flavor was indescribably wonderful.  more >>

Apple - Opal

I first noticed them at WalMart last year. As a previous poster noted, they were around for only a short time. They are back this year (it is early December as I write this). They have enough to feature them, and they are priced a little less than Honeycrisp. I have not seen scion wood or trees available. A previous poster noted, but I can't confirm, that one grower has the USA exclusive. more >>
