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', and like many old apple varieties Cox's Orange Pippin was discovered as a chance seedling.

  • Apple - Gala

    14 Jun 2022 
    lMy apples look fine however they have a stale taste
  • Apple - William's Pride

    08 Jun 2022 
    Is this apple variety known as William's favourite? I have this variety in my orchard, since the 1970s.
  • Gage - Golden Transparent

    05 Jun 2022 
    Can occasional Black Knot prevent my 2016 tree from producing fruit? It gives blossoms and although self fruitful, I additionally hand pollinate it from another nearby Gage Plum.
  • Plum - Gordon Castle

    05 Jun 2022 
    Planted in 2021. Doing extremely well on the heavy soil of South Yorkshire. Strong growing and already has half a dozen small fruit
  • Plum - Toptaste Kulinaria

    05 Jun 2022 
    I planted two of these in South Yorkshire 2 years ago. They are very susceptible to leaf curling midge. My other plum trees varieties aside Mirabelle de Nancy, are not similarly affected and are doing well. To be fair I live on an exposed hilltop, but I expected better.
