Allington's Pippin was originally called the South Lincoln Pippin - a cross between King of Pippins and Cox's Orange Pippin. It was bred by Thomas Laxton but renamed by fellow nurseryman George Bunyard in 1894. Allington Pippin apples are by all accounts on the sharp side but can also be cooked. It's a relatively easy tree to grow, crops heavily, and has a compact habit good for small gardens.
