Reportedly first found somewhere in mid 1700 on Long Island, the Newtown Pippin is considered by many apple growers to be of the oldest original US varieties. Benjamin Franklin is said to have taken a few samples to the England, which one would assume must have been one of the first American fruits exported to the UK. With a distinctive green- sometimes overlaid with yellow blushes - it is very sweet and very long lasting. Like the Arkansas Black, it does not have the "curb appeal" of a shiny apple and hence you have probably not bought one from a supermarket. But if you want a good keeping, good eating, and good tasting apple, this apple is hard to argue with.
