Holstein Pippin was first discovered as a chance seedling in Germany in 1918. Predicted to be an open pollinated seedling of Cox's Orange Pippin.
The apple is round, conical, with a flat base and slightly lopsided. Yellow fruit with blush of reddish-orange, sometimes lightly russeted. Firm, juicy creamy yellow flesh. Aromatic flavor of Cox's Orange, but easier to grow.
Tree is vigorous, scab resistant but prone to frost damage. Triploid (near the top of Tom Burford's list, though blight susceptible). Ready to harvest in late September-October, can be eaten September-February, improves with storage.
