Apple "St Edmunds Pippin" - Malus domestica
Apples are the most important commercial fruit, with many hundreds of named varieties. St. Edmund's Pippin is a pretty little dessert cultivar raised in England around 1870. Russet, gold and orange with a soft sheen, it has a rich aromatic flavour when eaten fully ripe. The blossom is tinged with pink and of a neat habit. This cluster of fruit came from the National Collection at Brogdale.
