Ribston Pippin

Malus domestica 'Ribston Pippin'

The Ribston Pippin is a classic dessert apple in England - one of the best for eating, cooking and cider. It has a yellow flushed bright orange fruit with red blush, often sprinkled with a russet webbing at its base and apex. It makes up for its unattractive exterior with a hard, crisp, fine grained, extrememly sugary flesh that offers a fine, rich flavor and a pleasant aroma.

Originated in Yorkshire, England around 1700. Parent of Cox's Orange Pippin.
