Crispin apple

[English] plural Crispin apples

A large, originally Japanese apple called Mutsu, with greenish golden skin sometimes flushed with orange, a cross between Golden Delicious and Indo, since 1948. It gained its English name in 1968. It has crisp, firm white flesh, agreeably tart, and they store well. It is a triploid, which means that it is a poor pollinator and is a late-season apple, harvested from mid-October in South-East England and is at its best from December to February. When cooked it retains its shape but is most useful in salads.
