Pine Golden Pippin is a classic English russet apple from the Victorian era. The skin is usually extensively, if not entirely covered in russet.
Like most russets the cream flesh has a firm rather than crisp texture, and is not as explosively juicy as modern apples. The flavor is multidimensional, but essentially sweet, with a distinct pineapple-like note.
Pine Golden Pippin was well-regarded in Victorian England as a late fall dessert apple. If you have not tried a russet apple before it is very typical of this distinctive group, and makes an interesting addition the backyard orchard.

Like many russet apples, Pine Golden Pippin is fairly disease-free - the russet coat seems to keep bugs and infections at bay.
It is fairly easy to grow, but blooms quite late in the spring when many other varieties may no longer be in flower, so make sure you have a suitable pollinator variety nearby - or ask us for advice.
