Newtown Pippin Apple
This apple has a remarkably balanced tart/sweet flavor and an aroma described as "piney". It is noted for the quality of the fresh and fermented cider it yields, its superior baking qualities, its excellent taste when eating out-of-hand, and its ability to mellow and improve with storage. The Newtown Pippin was a favorite of several founding fathers, including George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson who grew them at Monticello.
