Description

Also called crispin apple

Complex and spicy flavor. This tree is the result of a cross between the Golden Delicious and the sweet Japanese variety apple called Indo. Also known by the name Crispin Apple, the fruit is larger and rounder than Golden Delicious. Resists russeting and is best eaten fresh from the tree. Keeps well in proper storage without shriveling. Cold hardy. Ripens in late September or early October. Best pollinators: any Golden Delicious, Stark® Jon-A-Red® Jonathan or Starkspur® Red Rome Beauty.

Note: Triploid; cannot pollinate other apple trees.

This is one of our favorite apples. We drive for miles to find an orchard that grows them every year, and are excited to finally have them in the yard

We grew them previously in California and absolutely loved them. They are great for making pies and for baked apples.
