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 - ScrumptiousI find Scrumptious extremely unpleasant to eat. It is very astringent and although the fruit are small, I have never managed to eat a whole one. Going to try making jelly with them this year. After I had planted the tree in 2010, a local gardener told me that it doesn't seem to to taste nice in Scotland, so it may have something to do with the climate or the softer water?? more >>

Apple - WinesapThe photo on the front page for this must have been taken in UK, for the true Winesap here in WA, USA, is red on red, with bright yellow if a leaf lays against the skin. Not to be confused with Stayman, a seedling of Winesap, with twice the size and half the taste or flesh color. Big flavor, of a different sort than Margil or Suntan. more >>
