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.

Do not use another triploid since triploid apples have sterile pollen. Medium size tree with fair storage ability. Ripens September to October, depending on location.
