Christmas Pippin

Christmas PippinChristmas Pippin is a chance seedling found at the side of the M5 in Somerset by Geoffrey Rowson, He liked the flavour of the apples, so sent them to F.P. Matthews Ltd for field trials, they proved to have exceptional taste, so the variety was released in 2013. They have a Sunset like appearance and flavour, so Cox is probably one of the parents, but as to the other parent, no one is sure. An excellent eating apple, with a rich flavour, sweet but with a nice balanced acidity.
