Isle of Wight Pippin apple


A variety of eating apple which was probably introduced commercially from Normandy in France to the Isle of Wight. This yellowish-green apple is flushed blushed with red and has some russet. It is recorded as growing in the garden of a cottage in Wrexham, near Undercliff, in 1817 by Mr TA Knight. This late-season variety is harvested from mid-October in South-East England and is at its best from December to March.
