Ribston Pippin

Also known as the Glory of York, this is the most famous variety from the English county of Yorkshire. Ribston Pippin is a strong-tasting 'aromatic' apple, very popular in Victorian times.  The flavour is at its best a month or so after picking, and it can also be used for culinary purposes and for its sweet/sharp juice. Although a good apple in its own right, the key interest in Ribston Pippin is that it is almost certainly the parent of the world-renowned Cox's Orange Pippin.  It has a stronger more robust flavour than its offspring but is arguably less refined.  This robustness can be seen in some of the offspring of Cox's Orange Pippin such as Suntan
