A quite different and distinctive apple. You will not find another apple quite like Pitmaston Pineapple. Small golden yellow apples, oblong conical in shape covered with a fine russet. Sweet yet sharp. Honeyed yey nutty flavour and nicely scented, but any pineapple flavour is difficult to distinguish. A neglected variety because of the apples small size, but this is a feature in itself. A variety well worth growing. A fruiting tree in the autumn is an impressive sight with the golden apples contrasting with the yet to fall leaves.
Not a variety that you would find in a supermarket – it is all they dislike! Small, yellow & spotty! yet its intense flavour blows all of these mass produced apples away
A very long established variety. Thought to be a seedling of Golden Pippin recorded in 1785 but introduced by John Williams 1773-1853, a Worcester businessman who had a variety of other interests including horticulture. He raised a number of established fruit tree varieties we grow including Apple Pitmaston Russet & Pear Pitmaston Duchess. A blue plaque was unveiled in his memory on July 3, 2015 at Pitmaston House in the city where he lived probably from 1804 until the end of his life.
