Sturmer Pippin Apple Scionwood (Spring 2024)


An English heirloom with excellent storage qualities.

Sturmer Pippin is partially self-fertile, but a better fruit set will be obtained with another variety present. The tree is hardy, vigorous, and productive with an upright habit.

Ripening very late in the season, this medium-sized apple is green-yellow with some red flush and russeting. The flesh is very pale, firm, and fine with a sharp, aromatic flavor that does not realize its full potential until it has been in storage for at least a month. 

Sturmer Pippin is possibly a cross of Ribston Pippin and Nonpareil. It was presented to the Horticultural Society in England by Ezekiel Dillistone in 1827 and was named after the village of Sturmer in Essex. Its outstanding storage qualities made it a favorite apple in the Victorian era. It was also a popular variety in Australia in the 19th century, as the apples were able to be exported without any loss of quality.

Clean vs. Regular

Our clean scion is harvested from trees grown on G.16, which is extremely sensitive to viruses. These trees would not have survived if the scion contained viruses. Our clean wood has not been lab tested. Regular = may contain one of the common latent viruses; this is not usually a problem and can be used with most rootstocks.
