First tried the SunCrisp apple this year at a local farmers market in Alabama. After the first bite my wife and I knew that this was going to be our apple of choice. Unfortunately he had a limited supply this year and I tried three weeks to get more and he sold out most times before the market even opened up and I was showing up an hour and half before the market opened. My wife and I like sweet with tart and crunchy apples, this fits the bill. so now I have my own.

This is by far the best apple I have ever eaten. The fruit stays really well in the fridge and it has a sweet/tart flavor. I have not found it for sale anywhere around Traverse City so I have decided to grow my own.

It is a beautiful apple and people are drawn to sunny apples. It will be a good addition to my orchard and I believe people will buy the fruit.

Sun Crisp Apple
Maybe my favorite of all the newer apples.
Late season, very crisp and flavorful, easy to grow.

Heavy bearing
I purchased this and another tree as a gift for my grandchildren. They had a few apples last fall and visiting there today I noticed we will need to restack the tree as a heavy crop is pulling it to one side. Has a high percentage of clean fruit with minimal spraying.
