Gilpin is a small- to medium-sized and conical apple. It is mostly red with a hint of orange over a yellow base. A good keeper, its flavor is mild and sweet, its skin heavy, and the flesh somewhat dry.
Gilpin, also known as Carhouse, was discovered in Virginia in the early 1800s. It was grown for a time in New England. Its lineage is unknown.
