Description

The Mutsu Apple, also known as Crispin, is vigorous with fruit that has yellowish-green flesh with an orange blush and firm, sweet, juicy creamy-white flesh. Blooms mid-April and requires a pollinator such as 'Honeycrisp' for best fruit production, however the Mutsu apple is not suitable for being used as a pollinator for other varieties. Fruit ripens in early October. A semi-dwarf variety. Excellent for fresh eating, sauces, pies, and baking. Stores and keeps well.
