Fillingham Pippin apple

/FI-ling-uhm PI-pin/

A variety of red flushed blushed and striped eating apple raised in the 19th century by Mr Fillingham, a carter who worked out of Swanland in Yorkshire and who may have received the seed cuttings from his brother who lived in South America. This mid-season variety is harvested from early-October in South-East England and is at its best from October to December.
