Newtown Pippin was the workhorse of Washington, Jefferson and other colonial American orchards. Also known as Albermarle Pippin and Yellow Newtown, it is a large yellow green deliciously sweet/tart aromatic apple with white dots on the skin. A large crop of fruit ripens in mid October but keeps for many months and tastes best after a month or more of storage. It blooms mid season with Rubinette and Spartan. It originated in Newtown on Long Island New York in 1759.
