Christmas Pippin ®


Description: Christmas Pippin is an exceptionally high quality eating experience. We would happily say this is the ‘new garden Cox’ but unlike this classic vintage variety, Christmas Pippin flowers and crops heavily. Delicious honey-flavoured fruit with creamy flesh, sweet and high in sugar content. Thin, orange flushed skin, juicy and crisp texture. A suitable garden variety for beginners as it's easy to grow. The apples store well until Christmas, so perfect for the Christmas Day apple pie or crumble!

History: First introduced in 2011 after it was discovered growing beside a road in an orchard in Somerset. The parentage is unknown, but there is clearly a resemblance to Cox's Orange Pippin.
