Our website is named after England's most famous apple variety - Cox's Orange Pippin - widely regarded as the finest of all dessert apples.

  • Apple - Cameo

    05 Dec 2022 
    No, I wouldn't say bland, either, nor pear. I've eaten dozens of this year's crop(2022- western NY) purchased at local farmers markets and they are some of the most appealing and consistent apples I've had in some time: markedly sweet with a bit of tartness to balance, crisp, slightly dry/astringent, medium-thick skin, clear strawberry note. Most I have seen tend toward the lighter end, with quite a bit of green and orange mottling. A delight all around and seems pretty stable thus far to boot.
  • Apple - Baldwin

  • Apple - Delicious

    30 Nov 2022 
    For the very best taste, let these hang on the tree until they start to form water core (around mid-Nov. where I live). The apple industry considers water core to be an overripening defect, but for the home grower it adds a wonderful winey perfume and sweetness. Nothing beats a Hawkeye Delicious riddled with pockets and streaks of water core. It's not actually water, it's alcohol...a little hard cider that Mother Nature infuses through the flesh for those who are patient. Heavenly!
  • Apple - Jazz

    26 Nov 2022 
    Jazz is my favorite apple. It bakes tremendously well, and is a wonderful snack apple with tart complex notes under a bit of sweetness. It seems to have become rather rare during the Pandemic and I long to see it return to stores here in Colorado.
  • Apple - Holiday

    26 Nov 2022 
    At the orchard where I help out in Ohio, the apple pickers all really gave a thumbs-up to this apple!
