Plant a Newtown Pippin Tree

Earth Day NY, working with MillionTreesNYC, is helping to get Newtown Pippins planted in NYC public schools! Our city schools, all grades, are now the top priority for sapling distribution. We have a couple dozen pairs of Newtown Pippins and gourmet pollinators left.

All The Newtown Pippin, "the nation's founding apple" favored by Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, and George Washington, is the only American heirloom apple native to New York City, having first been picked in 1730 on the Newtown farm of Gershon Moore, in what is now the Borough of Queens.

If your public school wants to plant these amazing apple trees, please email:
