Fiesta is a modern cultivar of domesticated apple which is often marketed as Red Pippin. It was developed in the United Kingdom by the breeders of East Malling Research, combining the Cox's Orange Pippin with the Idared apple. According to Orange Pippin website, it is really one of the best Cox's style apples, but much easier to grow having good disease resistance.

It is a sweet apple, nutty and aromatic, which uses for fresh eating, juice and hard cider. It is flushed and striped from orange and red, and has some apple russeting. It is harvesting at late season and keeps fresh for three months or more.
