Fall Pippin Apple


Fall Pippin Apple

Fall-Winter. Possibly a seedling of Holland Pippin or White Spanish Reinette, from New England before 1750.

Medium-large roundish high-quality all-purpose yellow fruit, sprinkled with a scattering of russet dots, a pronounced russet splash around the stem, and sometimes with a pinkish-red blush. Very good dessert quality. Makes a nice sauce.

One of the oldest American varieties, dating from back when apples were passed around freely and no one cared much about what it was called or where it was from. The name conveyed “seedling apple that ripens in fall,” but it also had more than two dozen other synonyms, including Autumn Pippin, Large Fall Pippin and Pound Pippin.

Our trees are grafted with scionwood we collected at Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, MA. Fedco is now working with Tower Hill to reconstruct their entire orchard. Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
