Forfar Pippin Dwarfing

Originated in Forfar Scotland, first described in 1851. Quite a handsome green apple, with some reddish orange stripe and some russet dots. Wider than it is tall, and very regular shape. Creamy white fine flesh tinged with green. Pleasant sweet sub-acid taste, with a faint aromatic flavour. Good eaten fresh, and some favour it in cooking as well.

Pollination Guide

  • Pollination is far simpler than most people think. Generally, unless self fertile simply get 2 or more different varieties in the same group (eg pears) to ensure adequate pollination. A more comprehensive explanation can be found in our Pollination Guide
