For the connoisseur who prizes a rich, complex flavor and firm, crisp, juicy texture, this apple has few peers. It’s unique distinctive taste combined with great keeping qualities made it the most prized of American dessert apples from the early 18th century. As a gesture of appreciation, Parliament permitted the Virginia apple to enter Britain duty-free, and the Newtown Pippin became an important export, commanding premium prices in the English market.

Choose rootstock type depending on availability:

Malus domestica Standard sized seedling rootstock. This is what trees were historically grafted on. These will be large trees that will grow for a century or more due to their cold hardiness and drought tolerance. Plant 25 feet or more apart.

M111 Semi Dwarf rootstock. 3/4 size of standard. A good compromise if you want a slightly smaller tree. Plant 15 feet or more apart.

M7 Semi Dwarf, Smaller than M111. Probably not as long lived, but produces sooner. Longer lived than M26. Plant 12 feet or more apart.

M26 Dwarf, Short lived (a few decades), fast producing, needs staked, not drought tolerant or as cold hardy, plant as close to 1-2 feet apart.
