Allington Pippin Apples

Allington Pippin Apples have pale yellowish-green skin with red flushes.

The flesh inside is off-white, with a rich, sharp, bitter-sweet flavour.

The Arlington Pippin Apple tree is compact, and can produce fruit without another apple tree to pollinate it, though another tree improves the quantity.

The apples ripen in October.

Arlington Pippin Apples can be used for cooking, but they are really best for eating fresh. Some say they are also good for cider.

Storage Hints

Arlington Pippin Apples store well. In storage, the flavour mellows and more of the sweetness comes out.

History Notes
