Inventory, lb : 0
Wyken pippin apples are small to medium in size and are conical and somewhat flat in shape. The green to yellow skin is smooth, semi-thick, and mottled with brown spots and red blush on the sides that are exposed to excess sun. There are also prominent lenticels or pores found on the surface of the skin. The flesh is cream-colored to white and is crisp, firm, and dense. Wyken pippin apples are robustly fruity and aromatic with a sweet and sharp flavor.
Wyken pippin apples are available in the late fall through winter.
Wyken pippin apples, botanically classified as Malus domestica, are members of the Rosaceae or rose family. Also known as Warwick pippin, Warwickshire pippin, White Moloscha, Airley, Alford Prize, Gerkin pippin, Pheasant’s Eye, and German Nonpareil, Wyken pippin apples are an antique variety that was popular in the nineteenth century in Europe with gardeners and orchardists and was a well-established commercial variety before it fell out of favor with the advent of modern commercial farming. The name “pippin” denotes that this apple was first grown from a seed and the tree bears a large amount of small, green apples that make an excellent fresh-eating fruit.
Wyken pippin apples contain some vitamin C, fiber including soluble fiber that aids in cardiovascular health, and insoluble fiber which aids healthy digestion.
Wyken pippin apples are best suited for both raw and cooked applications such as baking or boiling. They are primarily known as a fresh-eating variety and can also be used in desserts such as pies and tarts. Wyken pippin apples can also be used to make cider. Try pairing with a British cheese such as cheddar or slicing into salads. Wyken pippin apples will keep up to a month when stored in a cool, dry area such as a refrigerator.
The Wyken pippin is unlike many of the popular commercial varieties of apples today since it is smaller than the average apple and is not bi-colored or attractive in appearance. However, antique apples are seeing a resurgence in popularity, and Wyken Pippins can be found at specialty markets and from growers who are interested in preserving historic fruits.
The precise history of the Wyken pippin apple is unknown, although it likely originated in either England or Holland in the early 1700s. One theory is that the first Wyken pippin seedling was grown by Lord Craven at Wyken in England, though the seed came from an unknown European apple, perhaps from France. Today Wyken pippin apples are available at specialty grocers in Europe.
