Merry Christmas

Christmas named apple varieties that we have growing here at our Hocking Hills Orchard.

Christmas Pearmain - England, 1893. This is a late ripening small to medium sized apple. Skin is orange, red and deep yellow with russetting. Good sweet tart flavor and keeps until January.

Christmas Pink - California, 1930’s. An Albert Etter developed variety. Yellow skin medium size apple with solid pink flesh.

Christmas Pippin - UK, 2011. A new apple variety with Cox Orange Pippin like aromatic flavor but sweeter and easier to grow than Cox.

Merry Christmas! Jesus is the reason for the season!
