Apple 'Saint Edmund's Pippin' (syn. 'Saint Edmund's Russet'), late September. A late 19th century English dessert apple from Bury St Edmunds. "Picked too early, when green, hard and disappointing, but really ripe can be ambrosial, like pear flavoured vanilla ice cream" ('The New Book of Apples' by Joan Morgan and Alison Richards).
