SKU: APP-139 Category:

A sweet and richly flavoured dessert apple from Onibury, near Ludlow, Shropshire.  This cultivar is reputed to have been raised by Thomas Andrew Knight’s nursery in the early 19th Century. A report from 1883 described the Onibury Pippin as ‘a perfect model for a dessert apple from its handsome neat looks, golden colour and lasting qualities’. Disappearing in the mid 1900’s, it was rediscovered by a Shropshire tree warden in 1996.

Described as a ‘juicier’ version of the Blenheim Orange, this refreshing apple is ripe in October and November.
