Wyken Pippin apples originated near Coventry, England in the early 1700s from a seedling from a European apple, raised by Lord Craven of Coombe abbey who discovered it on his travels through Belgium and Holland and planted it in the garden of Wyken Manor house. The Wyken Pippin apple was one of the most popular varieties for home gardens in the 1800s. Wyken Pippin have smaller, slightly flattened apples. They have a soft orange-yellow skin often brilliant red blush on sunny side of tree and fruit. Fruit is often mottled, marbled and dotted with light russety dots. Inside, they have firm, crisp, sweet flesh with good concentrated sharp flavor. Best for fresh eating.

Basic idea for Pruning:  Most fruit trees should be pruned in frost-free periods mid to late winter. (apricots best after bud break) Remove most vertical branches and shorten side branches. Fruiting wood is best on horizontal to 45 degree limbs. Learn more...
