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 - Aceymac

Not unpleasant, but definitely NOT a true Mac...Has appearance of a Delicious, peaked bottom around the core. And is sweeter and crunchier than a Mac, again more like a Delicious. close to fraud or deception to not mention the obvious cross with a delicious. more >>

Apple - Golden Noble

In Southern California, Golden Noble apples ripen fully in October and are very sweet. The apples grow large and have a yellow skin when ripe. It makes a great eating apple. more >>

Apple - Opal

Best Apple I've ever tasted. I feel like the last reviewer might not have had an actual Opal apple, because they're always a deep yellow color. Very juicy, very sweet, but for me the big thing is the skin. I HATE hard skin on apples. I don't have good teeth, so if the skin's too hard I'm chewing apple skin for 3-4 minutes every bite. This one has soft great skin, I can actually bite the apple itself. Favorite apple I've tried, and that's between 20-30 variety's. Opal I'll go anywhere to find. more >>
