Ribston Pippin Dwarfing

From Yorkshire UK around 1700, thought to be the parent of both Cox's Orange Pippin and Sturmer. Dark orange with quite a bit of russet on the skin and a reddish stripe. Rich dense aromatic flesh makes it one of our favourite eating apples. 'Redolent of Autumn' said an English friend.
