Yellow Ingestrie Apples were developed from a cross between Cox’s Orange Pippin and Golden Pippin apples. The cross was possibly done by a T.A. Knight, President of the London Horticultural Society, at Elton Manor, near Ludlow, Shropshire, England, around 1800.
The apple is named after Ingestrie Hall, owned by a Lord Talbot in Staffordshire, England.
