Kerry Irish Pippin is a small, shiny yellow fruit sometimes striped red in the sun. The crisp, crunchy, hard flesh has an intriguing flavor which, after much discussion and tasting, we can only characterize as a hint of boysenberry. Delicious! Kerry Irish Pippin is a small tree with regular crops, making it a great choice for the small garden. Long grown in Ireland.

Trees are shipped with your invoice and helpful planting directions.
