A delightful mid-season dessert apple ripening at the end of September, CrimsonCrisp is iconically round and quite possibly the brightest red apple we’ve seen. With yellow dapples here and there and a signature shine, without exaggeration, CrimsonCrisp practically beams! Tiny russet dots scatter thin skin covering very crisp and juicy flesh, utterly refreshing. Sweet flavor and hints of cherry are balanced by just the right amount of tartness. A scab resistant variety released in 1971 by PRI (Purdue, Rutgers & University of Illinois) with Jonathan and Rome Beauty parentage, CrimsonCrisp is an excellent option for no spray and organic homeowners & orchards.
Our Organic CrimsonCrisp Semi-Dwarf Apple Trees are bareroot nursery stock, and are graded to a minimum of 36” tall when Fall-dug from the nursery. All of our Organic Semi-Dwarf Apple varieties are grafted onto semi-dwarf Geneva apple rootstocks, making them easier to pick, prune and maintain than standard sized trees. Proven to be cold hardy, as well as resistant to Fireblight, Phytophthora and replant disease, Geneva semi-dwarf rootstocks induce fruit bearing in just a few years. Keeping most Apple varieties to between 10 and 12 feet tall at maturity, our semi-dwarf Apple trees will usually require support from staking or trellising throughout their lifespan. The reduced tree size allows trees to be spaced 8 to 15 feet apart if planted in a row.
CrimsonCrisp needs another Apple variety nearby for Pollination! All of the Apples we offer are compatible pollination partners.
