Description

Originally named South Lincoln Pippin this cross between King of Pippins and Cox's Orange Pippin was bred by Thomas Laxton of Stamford before 1884. Renamed by Bunyard's of Maidstone in 1896. Medium sized round fruit of distinctly conical shape. Pale yellow with red cheek when fully ripe. Makes a compact tree for a small garden. It is reasonably hardy, and crops well - but can be small or biennial if not thinned. Stores well, with a hint of fruit drops or pineapple flavouring.This partially self-fertile dual-purpose Apple is believed to have originated from Lincolnshire, UK in 1884
