Red Pippin apple


A name for Fiesta, a large, round apple bred from Idared crossed with Cox's Orange Pippin, to which it is similar in flavour, by Dr F Alston at East Malling Research Station in Kent in 1972. It has crisp, juicy flesh and golden-yellow skin almost covered with light red stripes and flushes. It is easier to grow than Cox's Orange Pippin. It received the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Merit in 1989. This mid-season variety is harvested from late-September in South-East England and is at its best from October to December. It is highly productive and disease-resistant.
