Newton Wonder is a high quality late-season English cooking apple from the Victoria era, producing large handsome apples.

It inherits its excellent tangy flavour from one of its probable parents, Dumelow's Seedling. It cooks to a light puree. The flesh is less juicy than some cookers, making it useful for recipes where you do not want too much moisture such as mincemeat.

Overall, Newton Wonder makes an interesting alternative to the more well-known Bramley.
