Cox's Orange Pippin
The most popular of English apples, it has been awarded the highest honors by the Royal Horticultural Society. It was originally grown from seed (hence the name Pippin) in 1825 by Richard Cox, an amateur horticulturist. Its tart, citrus flavor is exquisitely tempered by a sweet pear flavor. It is excellent for eating and cooking. A small, round apple with orange skin, sometimes with some russeting.
Reine des Reinettes
A French apple from the 1700’s which has a high sugar content that’s balanced with acidity. It’s a juicy apple, good for eating out of hand. It is also good for cooking and in Normandy it is considered the best apple for making hard cider. One of our favorite apples and a top favorite at the tastings here on the farm. A large, beautiful apple, red blush with russeting.
Orleans Reinette
According to our orchard manager, this is "One of the most handsome apples on the planet." Grown in France for hundreds of years, it has a flattened shape with a russeted, rosy cheek. It has a combination of citrus and nutty flavors, and makes for a good cooking apple as well as for eating out of hand.
Belle de Boskoop
This apple is originally from the Netherlands and has a tart, sprightly flavor. It is a superb cooking apple and is the only apple considered suitable for making authentic strudel. Boskoops picked later in the fall are much sweeter and are excellent for fresh use. Very large apple greenish-orange, lightly russeted skin.
Claygate Pearmain
A fawn-colored, small russeted apple originally found growing in a hedgerow in Surrey England in the 1820s. Crisp, juicy with an aromatic honey flavor.
Ribston Pippin
This apple goes back to 1708 in Yorkshire England. The original tree grew from seeds from Normandy. It is a parent of Cox’s Orange Pippin but is sweeter, with a delightful pear flavor. Good for both fresh eating and culinary use. Ribston is a recent favorite when we have tastings at the farm. Reddish skin, some orange and light russeting.
Dolgo Crabapple
These tangy crabapples originally came from Kazakhstan several hundred years ago. With an intense, zesty flavor similar to cranberries, their best use is in sauces, sorbets, chutney or as a condiment for meat or poultry. They make a beautiful rose-colored jelly. These have become very popular for hard cider. During harvest the crew will often suck on Dolgos for an energy boost to help finish filling that last apple bin late in the day. Small, cranberry red.
