- Large, round to slightly flat, green to yellow fruits
- Flavor becomes sweeter and richer in storage
- Good for cooking and eating fresh
This American original produces large, crisp fruits that have a wonderfully complex, refreshingly tart flavor when picked from the tree--and a sweeter and richer flavor after a few months in storage. Newtown Pippin Apple Tree is an heirloom variety that was admired and grown by Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. The green-to-yellow skinned fruits have a cream colored flesh that's firm and juicy. They're good for both eating fresh and cooking--and they have very good storage qualities. For the best apple production, the trees require 700 chilling hours below 45°F. Fruits ripen in October.
