Newtown Pippin apple


Taking its name from the village of Newtown on Long Island, where it was first grown in the 1700s, this all-purpose apple is also referred to simply as Pippin. Its skin ranges from bright green at harvest time to a mellow yellow-green to yellow. The flesh is crisp and juicy with a slightly tart flavor. Newtown Pippins brown quickly when cut.
