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 - Honeycrisp

I found Honey Crisp at my local Costco store in Naples Florida. Originally I would buy Red Delicious and have maybe two a week. I now eat a Honey Crisp every night before bed! Outstanding Taste, Texture, Firmness, and a wonderful after taste that stays sweet long after I've finished! Being diabetic, I find it very satisfying and I know it has yet to affect my blood readings in the slightest! more >>

Apple - Pacific Rose™

Tried this variety for the first time this past December. Excellent rich sweetness, not sugary, more like fine honey. Very firm and lots of juice. I'm not a fan of thick skin, but its worth it in this variety, which is a unique blush-rose color. Medium sized apple. Hard to eat just one. more >>

Apple - Aurora Golden Gala

Just discovered this variety at a Safeway in San Francisco this year. It's now my favorite snack apple. Very pleasantly sweet with a little spiciness. Much firmer than Golden Delicious, with a nice thinner skin. Bruises somewhat easily, but who cares when an apple is this juicy and crackly? The availability was pretty short, so I'm looking forward to next year already. Just about the perfect snack apple in my opinion. Should be much more widely known... more >>
