Pitmaston Pineapple

A Distinctive Apple.

First Reported1785
Use bySept to Dec

Pitmaston Pineapple was raised circa 1785 from a seed of Golden Pippin by a Mr. White, an employee of Lord Foley of Witley. It was exhibited at the London Horticultural Society in 1845 by J Williams of Pitmaston, Worcester.

Pitmaston Pineapple is a conical apple and is one of the smallest apple varieties in our orchard. It is, however, a most distinctive variety with a lovely nutty, honey- sweet taste with more than a hint of pineapple. Its skin is greenish yellow to golden yellow and it is lightly flushed with an even deeper yellow. It is a most attractive dessert apple.

It is picked in mid –September and will last until December.
