Inventory, lb : 0
Norman’s Pippin apples are medium in size and round in shape. The green-yellow skin is smooth, matte, and covered in russeting and lenticels, or spots. The flesh is firm, soft white to pale green, and has a narrow, central, fibrous core that encases a single small brown seed. Norman’s Pippin apples are also known for their very long and slender stems. Norman’s Pippin apples are crisp and have a rich and aromatic flavor.
The Norman’s Pippin apple is available in the winter.
The Norman’s Pippin apple is a very early 20th century antique apple (Malus domestica) from Gloucestershire, England. Today, it is still grown sporadically, but is very difficult to find commercially.
Low in calories and high in beneficial nutrients, apples are great choices for snacks or as part of meals. They contain small amounts of boron, potassium, and Vitamin C. More significantly, one apple contains one-fifth of the daily recommended value of dietary fiber. Fiber regulates energy in the blood stream, protects against cancer, promotes cardiovascular health, and keeps the digestive system working.
The Norman’s Pippin is mostly known as a cider and dessert apple for fresh eating. Pair this apple with spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg, as well as traditional English cheeses such as cheddar. Store apples in cool, dry conditions such as the crisper drawer of the refrigerator.
Many apples are referred to as “pippins,” including the Norman’s Pippin. The word simply means seedling, and points to the fact that the first Norman Pippin apple was discovered as a wild-growing seedling.
The origin of the Norman’s Pippin is unknown, though some think it may have first been grown at an English monastery. During its heyday, it was given the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Merit in 1901. The Norman’s Pippin grows in temperate climates such as that found in the British Isles.
