The name Allington Pippin was given to this variety in 1894 by the nurseryman George Bunyard after the village of Allington. Cream colored flesh mellowing to intense fruit drop (candy) or pineapple taste. Sharp (acid) and good for cooking as it holds its shape. Fruit medium-size, conic with some reddish flush or stripes over green or yellow.
