Growing Allington Pippin

Best planted in a sunny, sheltered spot. They can be planted as a specimen into a lawn, or lining a driveway where the lovely blossom can be enjoyed in spring.
If you're looking for suitable pollination partners, you can browse our full range of apple trees here.

Look out for:
The blossom has some susceptibility to frost damage so avoid planting in frost pockets, and can suffer from mildew. However, it has a good resistance to scab and is suitable for wet regions.
