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 - Grimes Golden

    30 Jun 2022 
    The Grimes Golden is a very old variety but one of the best there is. We raised Grimes my whole life until job moved me too far away. Too bad I can never find them in the store and people around eastern Kansas just do not raise them anymore. What a shame as they are excellent.
  • Apple - Newton Wonder

    30 Jun 2022 
    My great grandad was one of the couple of men who found the seedling on the roof of the pub in King’s Newton. The seedling was then planted into the pub garden where it still stands. He didn’t actually get it off the roof, I don’t imagine, as he had a wooden leg, having lost his in a thrashing machine in his early teans. He lived in Melbourne all his life where he was a tailor, until retirement in Chellaston. He died in the very early ‘50s.
  • Apple - Dorsett Golden

    26 Jun 2022 
    This is about the misinformation in the article. Apples cannot grow on a tropical Island such as the Bahamas. It's Nassau county NY where the yes originated. Mangos grow in Nassau Bahamas where it rarely gets below 60 degrees
  • Apple - Gala

    lMy apples look fine however they have a stale taste
  • Apple - William's Pride

    08 Jun 2022 
    Is this apple variety known as William's favourite? I have this variety in my orchard, since the 1970s.
