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. The only reason we can think of for it's relative decline is that it doesn't keep well. Saint Edmund's Pippin is one of only three varieties of eating apple we have at Habitat Aid HQ. They're so tasty the crows eat most of them before we get a look in.

Supplier : R.V. Roger Ltd.

See our section on Pollination Groups to help you select your apple trees.
We supply apple trees on the most vigorous rootstocks available. They were created specifically for use in the UK and produce healthy, heavy cropping trees for our weather conditions.

M106 produces a good garden sized apple tree, around 4 metres tall. Grown as a free standing tree it won't need staking, although initially best to use a cane to support your new plant. M25 rootstock will produce the 6m 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.
