Allington Pippin Apple

Description: Allington Pippin is a well known dessert apple which was originally grown for market in the UK but now found in gardens. Early in the month we find the apple coming into season. Pale yellow, flushed red fruit. Juicy and sharp with a pineapple flavour. Keeps well up until Christmas, by then the fruit is still fairly sharp. Allington Pippin cooks well, remaining firm; is good for purees and apple butter. Also produces an interesting juice which can be used in cider or cider vinegar. Pale pink flowers during the spring. Demands sun and open exposure.

Parentage: King of the Pippins x Cox’s Orange Pippin
