Sugarloaf Pippin


Also known as: Early Sugar Loaf, Sugar Loaf Greening, Hutching’s Seedling

Some early literature indicates this apple originated in England but most likely it arose in Russia. It was a popular apple widely grown in the Ohio Valley in the 1880’s and was believed to have been brought to this region from Pennsylvania around 1824. It was listed in a North Carolina nursery catalog in 1855. The apple is medium-sized, roundish and somewhat flattened with light green skin with heavy russeting around the cavity and large, distinctive, russeted dots. The flesh is white, fine-grained, somewhat dry and quite sweet. Ripens in August.
