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

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 with its pale yellow, flushed red fruit. Juicy and sharp with a pineapple flavour. Cooks well, remaining firm; is good for purees and apple butter; it produces interesting juice which can be used in cider or cider vinegar. Pale pink flowers during the spring. Demands sun and open exposure.

History: Raised by Thomas Laxton in Lincolnshire before 1884 as South Lincolnshire Pippin. In 1894 now known as Brown's South Lincolnshire Beauty, this variety received an RHS First Class Certificate. Renamed Allington Pippin and Introduced by Messrs G. Bunyard & Co.Lts in 1896.
