Malus domestica 'Newtown Pippin'

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.

Ask a Question
  • What is the dwarfing rootstock for the Newton Pippen apple?

    EMLA 26 Rootstock

  • Do you carry this variety in a standard size? I am very interested in adding this to my modest orchard, but due to my location I really need the standard size hardy rootstock!

    Currently we do not, sorry!

  • How far apart should the Newton Pippin trees be planted ?

    It depends on rootstock size. Dwarf trees should be 12 feet apart, while semi dwarf trees should be at least 16 feet apart.

Everything as expected

I received notice in mid -April that our Newtown Pippin was shipping and it arrived about a week later by UPS. This was earlier than expected but we’d had a warm spell. Cost of tree with shipping was $78. Everything was in good order, the box was undamaged, and the roots were wrapped, protected, and protected with shredded and wet cardboard. We were ready for it and planted it the same day. I think the tree was was supposed to be anywhere between 4-5’. I measured the planted tree at 44” so a little short but pretty close. It was nicely trimmed and has a really good form. We protected it with chicken wire fencing and are hopeful it might bloom this year as it is still dormant and the buds don’t look close to opening yet. We think the planting site is good and look forward to the apples.

Never Received

I never received my order. I spent nearly $365 on 5 trees with nearly $80 in shipping. With no signature required for delivery I have no idea where the packaged was delivered but I was home on day they say it was delivered. Raintree has not communicated any remedy even though they say delivery of live trees is guaranteed.
