The Suncrisp apple is a patented variety out of Rutgers University and the New Jersey Apple Breeding Program. It decends from a cross between Golden Delicious and Cox Orange Pippen and this apple retains the best qualities of parents. The apple is golden with an orange blush. This dual-purpose apple has a sweet, tart flavor. Like most fall apples it will keep well for a few weeks in your refrigerator. It is very juicy like Golden Delicious and has some of that apple’s spicy aroma as well.
The Suncrisp apple is used for a variety of items; baking pies and desserts, apple juice, apple butter, and apple sauce.
For a quick dessert one evening after dinner!
