Ribston Pippin, as the parent variety of Cox's Orange Pippin, is one of the most historically important varieties of apple. It is thought to have arisen from a seed brought to Yorkshire from Rouen, France, in 1688. The variety's flavour is not dissimilar to Cox, although there is a hint of pear-drops not found in the latter. It is not as good a keeper as the Cox and is best eaten by the end of December or earlier.
