Gardeners' Notes:

Positive spidra On Sep 27, 2007, spidra from Berkeley, CA (Zone 9b) wrote:

Absolutely my favorite apple cultivar! I like my fruits to be sweet and tart. Most apples are too sweet and insipid for me. But the Newtown Pippin is sublime with a layered flavor with hints of champagne. Green apple flavored candies are trying to taste like this queen of all apples. A good apple for eating, juicing, and cooking. It keeps well.

Also known as: Albemarle Pippin, Green Winter Pippin, New York Pippin.

"A venerable old variety originating in New York in the early 1800's. There are two recognized Newtown Pippins - Green Newtown Pippin and Yellow Newtown Pippin. One is the originator of the other, but as to which came first is unknown. Yellow Newtown Pippin is the most well known and a long-time southern favorite. It is a large apple, yellow in color with hints of pink at the stem end. The yellowish flesh is firm, crisp, and very aromatic. A good storage apple ripening in October and keeping into February or later."
