(also Sturmer pippin)
An eating apple of a late-ripening variety with a mainly yellowish-green skin and firm yellowish flesh.
- The market doesn't support more than a dozen varieties, a terrible shame considering the thousands in existence: who remembers Sturmers, Democrats, Ranelaghs or the Golden Pippin?
Mid 19th century: named after the village of Sturmer in eastern England, where it was first grown.
