History & Description
The Saltcote Pippin was first grown near Rye in 1928, overlooking the Rother estuary where salt was collected and dried.
It is a medium to large, handsome apple flushed red with some russeting and a rich, aromatic flavour. It produces a moderately vigorous, spreading tree which crops well. The fruit can be picked in early October and then stored until November to January.
