Description: Cockle Pippin is a high quality apple in warm season. A rather small dessert apple, fruits are greenish-yellow flushed faint brown and slight traces of grey russet on the cheek of the fruits. Smooth skins, can be greasy if stored. Creamy white, firm fine-textured flesh which is dry but sweet with a pleasant flavour. Cooks to a smooth puree. An excellent cropper with good disease resistance!
