Pitmaston Pineapple Apple


Pitmaston Pineapple Apple

Early Fall. Thought to be a seedling of Golden Pippin. Herefords, England, circa 1785.

This apple is in the same class as Egremont Russet, Ashmead’s Kernel, and other old highly flavored English dessert apples. What an incredible treat to have these small 2" conical solid-yellow russetted apples ripening in mid-September. You can easily eat three or four at a sitting, or stock your pockets for a snack later on.

The aromatic juicy fruit is variously described as slightly sweet, sweet-sharp, sugary, honeyed, nutty, rich, intense, distinctive, pineapple-like. We like little Pitmaston largely because the flavor is not only sweet, but also intense and peculiar. Keeps a month or so.

Moderately vigorous upright habit. Scab resistant. Blooms late. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
