John,
Do you know if Newton Spitzenburg carries any disease resistances? 
I'm trying to manage my apples without spraying (blessed to live in eastern WA) and any inherent strengths are worth considering.

Newtown Spitzenburg    Unknown parentage. Newtown, NY, 1817. Medium-sized roundish-conic angular fruit, patched with glowing orange-red, dark red and russet, sprinkled with russet dots. Eclipsed by two apples that each bear half its name—Newtown Pippin and Esopus Spitzenburg—it is quite the deserving apple in its own right. It has been a personal favorite at the Tower Hill Botanic Garden tastings for years. A true fall dessert apple. Each bite releases a charge of flavor that percolates in the mouth and throat. In Apples of New York, 1905, Beach describes it as, “firm, fine-grained, crisp, juicy, mild subacid mingled with sweet, rich, aromatic, very good to best in flavor and quality.” He suggests it fell out of favor due to its unreliable cropping, variable size and dull coloring. Not tested yet in central Maine, so hardiness could be a concern for anyone north of about Portsmouth NH.
