Filippa apple

Filippa is a Danish apple cultivar. The cultivar was created by a schoolgirl named Filippa Johannsen ( 1842 - 1930) in Hundstrup on Funen.[1]

Some sources say the apple originates in 1850;[2] other sources say 1881.[1]

Sonneruplund recommends this apple variety for private gardens, as it can be grown without the use of pesticides.[3]
