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 - Pumpkin Sweet

If there any Canadians viewing this post, where did you get your trees/ scionwood? The one lady mentions Tillich Nursery, but they don't ship, as far as I can tell and I am a few thousand miles away. more >>

Apple - Pixie Crunch

I've grown 8 of these trees over the years, 3 on M7 and 5 on G30... all in North Carolina. While fireblight and cedar-apple rust can be severe, they can be grown in the Southeast with a good fungicide/insecticide program. They have a great flavor and the crispness is exceptional. Of the over 50 kinds of apples I have grown, this was the most popular with folks. It is among my top 10 favorite apples for fresh eating. more >>

Apple - Haralson

We never peal our Harolson before baking. The peels dissolve and add a wonderful flavor. Often, we are asked “is there some rhubarb in this pie?” It is also a lot less work... more >>

Apple - Pixie Crunch

I planted 5 varieties at the same time - 2 disease resistant, 2 heirloom and the Pixie Crunch. Cedar apple rust and fireblight are problems here and the Pixie Crunch needed more attention than the others put together. Since my goal was as low maintenance as possible, the tree had to go. It already had half the limbs removed due to fireblight and the rest of the leaves all showed cedar apple rust even after being on a spray schedule. more >>
