Malus domestica 'Newtown Pippin'
Newtown Pippin Apple
Newtown or Yellow Pippen is not the most beautiful apple in the world, but has a rich, juicy flavor with a piney tartness. It is medium to large and has excellent dessert quality. The fruit is green, breaking to light yellow when ripe. It ripens late in the season, just ahead of Granny Smith. It should be pollinated with late to late-mid season blooming varieties. Apparently Newtown Pippen was George Washington's favorite apple. It originated in Newtown, Long Island, New York in 1759.
