Description
In pomological literature the name Newtown Pippin has often been used in such a way that it is uncertain whether the writer had in mind the Yellow Newtown or the Green Newtown, and the correct synonymy cannot be accurately determined in all cases. The difference between the Yellow and Green Newtown apples is slight, in that the color is distinct as well as the flavor of the flesh. Beach notes that the Yellow Newtown is more attractive than the Green.
