Honey Pippin is an interesting Cox-style variety from Suffolk, England, developed in the mid-20th century. Although visually resembling Cox's Orange Pippin, and with a similar firm texture, the flavour is quite different with little of the aromatic quality associated with Cox's Orange Pippin.
Honey Pippin was named for its 'honeyed' flavour, which is a sought-after rich sweet flavour found most notably in (ripe) Golden Delicious and Grimes Golden. However this flavour is only present in Honey Pippin after a very good summer; in a poor year the flavour is unremarkable, but still very pleasant. Regardless of the name, this is basically a good apple with a pleasing flavour.
