Galloway Pippin is a popular dual-purpose apple from south-west Scotland, ripening mid/late season. The Victorian pomologist Robert Hogg rated it as a "first-rate kitchen apple".

Galloway Pippin is best treated as a cooking apple, and slices keep their shape when cooked. The apples also store fairly well, but lose their sharpness - and then become more suitable as brisk eaters.

Galloway Pippin is noted for its attractive blossom.

How to grow

Galloway Pippin is a hardy tree, particularly suitable for areas with mild damp climates (in which fungal infections often thrive).

History

Galloway Pippin is an old Scottish variety from Wigtown in Galloway. It was first recognised by the RHS in 1871, when it was awarded a 1st class certificate, but is probably much older.
