About Allington Pippin apples
A medium-sized piece of fruit, the Allington Pippin apple is known for its candy-like and aromatic pineapple flavor. This flavor tends to alter a bit in storage, as the pineapple flavor doesn't seem as intense, although it remains rather sharp. A brownish-red flush and striping enhance its cream-colored flesh and pale yellow skin.
Developed by horticulturist Thomas Laxton in England in 1884, the apple was originally known as the Brown's South Lincoln Beauty. He created it by crossing Cox's Orange Pippin with the King of the Pippins, and this new variety earned recognition at the Royal Horticultural Society in 1889. A few years later, another Englishman named George Bunyard began growing the same variety, and after buying the naming rights, he renamed it after his Allington Nursery in Kent.
The Pippin part of the name refers to an apple that was grown from a seed that randomly sprouted. Most apples that are grown for home gardening or commercial use end up as Pippin varieties. The Allington Pippin apple became popular in the 1930s and is mostly found in home gardens and nurseries today.
