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 - Early Strawberry

I have a tree I have tentatively identified as Early Strawberry, based on information I found online. The fruit ripens in mid July. It will get dark red, but once it hits that stage, it over ripens in a matter of hours. I usually pick when they have just a blush of red for the best results. It makes absolutely marvelous applesauce, but is really not ideal for other uses since it cooks up too fast to hold its density in pies. I have found I can bake a crust, make my filling, and using a crumb topping, only bake long enough to brown the top and that makes a good pie. But fully baked, it seems more like applesauce pie. Does it sound like Early Strawberry? more >>

Apple - Red Delicious

It's a one-dimensional apple (sweet) that tastes like old snow when it gets a little long in the tooth. Problem is, you have no idea when you buy them just how old they are. more >>
