Apple Kerry Pippin

An Irish heritage variety, Kerry Pippin is an early eating apple. The fruit is small and glossy, greenish-yellow flushed orange with red specks, with crisp, sweet, yellowish flesh of delicious, rich, aromatic flavour, much liked by children. The tree is moderately vigorous and upright, easy to prune and a reliable bearer. Spur-bearer, a healthy tree, although there is some susceptibility to scab. Fruit ready to pick mid-late August, and can be eaten from late August, keeping for about a month. Kerry Pippin is a good choice for the smaller garden.
