Ribston Pippin - Apple Varieties

Ribston Pippin

A particuarly handsome apple, thought to be one of the parents of Cox's Orange Pippin. It has some of the aromatic qualities of that variety when eaten fresh, but is noticeably sharper in flavor - and for this reason is often used in the kitchen as well.

By Victorian times Ribston Pippin was very popular as a late fall apple, and the Victorian fruit enthusiast Robert Hogg reported that it was in "greatest perfection during November and December".
