Growing Calendar for Apple Christmas Pippin - Apple Tree
Delivery: Early November to Late April
Everyone's favourite English apple just got better with the Christmas Pippin! This Delicious Cox type apple has a very high, natural sugar content.
Christmas Pippin is a new Cox-style apple variety introduced in 2011. Unusually for a modern apple variety, it is a genuine "pippin" apple, raised from seed and of unknown parentage.
Christmas Pippin is a very "more-ish" apple, with a definite apple flavour, juicy melting flesh and a thin skin - and it tastes exactly like an apple should. The flavour is essentially sweet, but with some sharpness too.
It is bound to be popular with fans of Cox's Orange Pippin or similar varieties - and it is much easier to grow. Christmas Pippin® is a protected variety.
It has the same creamy flesh and aromatic flavour as a traditional Cox's Orange Pippin but matures later.
Cropping from mid-October it reaches perfection in November/December. We found it to be perfect accompaniment to a glass of port and a spoonful of Stilton on Christmas Day!
