Jefferson documented

'Albemarle Pippin' was one of Thomas Jefferson's two favorite table apples, the other being 'Esopus Spitzenburg'. He planted as many as 50 'Albemarle Pippin' in the South Orchard at Monticello between 1769 and 1814. The variety originated in Newtown, New York in the 18th century, and is usually known as 'Newtown Pippin' for that reason. Jefferson wrote from Paris in 1786, "They (Europeans) have no apples here to compare with our Newtown Pippin." Benjamin Franklin reputedly introduced the variety into England, as an example of a superior American fruit variety, and in the 19th century, Queen Victoria fancied the fruit so much as to exempt Virginia-grown apples from an import tax. The apples store well through winter in a cool cellar or refrigerator. zone4,zone5,zone6,zone7

This tree will ship bare root. Tree arrives approximately 46” tall with 1” caliper.

Bare root planting tips:
  • If you can't plant immediately, store your plant in a cool location and keep the roots moist or pot in a container with a nursery potting mix from your local garden center.
  • Before planting, let the roots soak for several hours as you prepare the site. You'll want to dig a large enough hole so the root mass can spread out and the plant is at the same soil level as when it was growing in the nursery.
  • Once planted, water it in well and wait a month before fertilizing. Mulching will help to maintain moisture and raise soil temperatures for faster growth.
