Whiting Pippin

Whiting Pippin

An obscure culinary apple that arose in Worcestershire, being first recorded in 1883. It was said to be much grown in Worcestershire and neighbouring Shropshire in the 19th century.

Very little in the way of written records or evidence about the variety is known other than that Robert Hogg describes the fruit in his Fruit Manual of 1884. The apple is probably another of those cooking apples that was superseded by better modern varieties, an interesting historical culinary apple but one of which there are undoubtedly better varieties.

There are believed to be 28 varieties of Worcestershire apple
