King’s Acre Nursery in Hereford introduced this fine apple in the late 1890’s. It arose as a cross between Sturmer Pippin, a sweet sharp dessert apple, and Ribston Pippin, an aromatic dense fleshed Cox type apple. Kings Acre Pippin combines the flavours and the keeping qualities of both of its parents.
