Saint Edmund's Pippin is still found around East Anglia, although it was most popular in the early 1900s. It owes its name to Bury St. Edmunds in Suffolk, where it was raised by a Mr. Harvey. Whisper it not, but this golden russet apple - also known as Saint Edmund's Russet - is even tastier than the better known Egremont Russet. Saint Edmund's Pippin is one of only three varieties of eating apple we are planting at our new house.

The rootstock for all our apple trees is the most vigorous available. We try to offer as many apple varieties as we can on M25 rootstock, which will produce the standard trees of a traditional orchard, where they would be planted between 6 and 8 metres apart. Please refer to our size guide for details.
All our Saint Edmund's Pippin trees are bare root. At the height of the lifting season there may be up to a month?s delay between placing the order and dispatching due to pressure of orders, which are dealt with in date sequence, and the weather. Orders for apple trees taken from March to September are confirmed in September ready for dispatch from November. Please note there is an overall minimum order size of £50.
