History and description of Lynn's Pippin

Raised in 1942 by William Lynn of Wisbech, Cambridgeshire UK from a Cox's Orange Pippin crossed with Ellison's Orange.

Round conical slightly ribbed medium sized fruit. Red lines and flush over a yellow and orange partially russetted skin. Attractive autumnal colours similar to Ribston Pippin. Soft, juicy cream coloured flesh. Sweet but with a good balancing acidity. At best quite a rich aromatic flavour similar to but usually not as good as Cox's Orange Pippin.
