1918 Hamburg, Germany. Holstein is an open-pollinated seedling of Cox Orange Pippin. Very juicy and aromatic with intense flavor. very scab resistant, a regular and heavy bearer and a good keeper. It is the largest seedling of the Cox’s Orange Pippin wonderfully flavored in its own right a rich delectable flavor that is the best for pies and tarts with all the requisites of sharpness, juiciness and lip smacking flavor. It’s wonderful to eat straight from the tree. The fruit is large, flattish, cone shaped, of deep yellow with varying red flush, sometimes lightly russeted, with creamy yellow, crisp flesh that has the most luscious aromatic flavor. Holstein is wonderful for culinary purposes, ripening late September.
