Saint Edmund’s Pippin – England 1870

Discovered in the orchard of a Richard Harvey, Bury St. Edmunds, England, about 1870. The best early russet and listed among the six best apples grown in England. Flat uniform-sized apple covered with a smooth, pale, beautiful fawn- colored russet in our climate. Very juicy, crisp, yellowish flesh, with pear-like flavor. Great for cider as well as eating. Shows some resistance to scab and cedar apple rust.
