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 - GrenadierPretty sure we have one. We peel and core and section after picking and then freeze so can use throughout the year in crumble, Apple plat and devised red cabbage. As others have said early picker and fabulous taste. more >>

Apple - FiresideI grafted this cultivar this past spring ( 2018 ) and it's showing signs of life, really do hope it's going to heal up the union and become a beautiful fruiting tree. It's siblings i.e. ( Honeycrisp and Zestar ) from the University of Minnesota are outstanding flavor filled apples so I'm definitely looking forward to sampling the Fireside. more >>

Plum - CzarVery prolific cropping plum. Easily maintainable tree with self fertile habit and good disease resistance. Flavour of fruit is good when plums are allowed to ripen properly but they do not keep well in my experience. Good dehydrated for storage and makes nice jams and chutneys. The wine made from this variety was ok but loses taste so is best blended. more >>
