The name Allington Pippin was given to this variety in 1894 by the nurseryman George Bunyard after the village of Allington. The Allington Pippin apple has cream colored flesh mellowing to intense fruit drop (candy) or pineapple taste. The Allington Pippin apple also has a sharp (acid) undertone making it fine selection for cooking as it holds its shape.

Size of tree
Our trees range in height from 4-8 ft. in our field and trimmed to 4 to 5 ft. when shipped. Our young two year trees are most often feathered (side limbs). The trees diameter (caliper) is often 1/2 to 3/4 inch; *As noted by University of California Scientists and other qualified professionals the most successful trees often have caliper from 1/2" to 5/8" and usually establish faster than smaller and larger planting stock. .
