American Golden Pippin

Discovered Late 1800s Maryland
Parentage Unknown

American Golden Pippin has an olive green skin with a red wash, and a little russeting. The dense, grainy, cream-colored flesh is not very juicy, and the flavor is mild, with a hint of tartness.


American Golden Pippin was discovered in the late 1800s, most likely in Maryland. It was valued because the trees were cold hardy and the apples were excellent keepers. It is used primarily for cooking or cider.
