Crimson Crisp Semi-Dwarf Apple Tree

mature height 10-12ft mid-season fresh eating, storage & sauce hardy to zone 4

*Bare-root apple trees will begin shipping mid-April 2022*
A delightful mid-season dessert apple ripening at the end of September, Crimson Crisp 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, Crimson Crisp 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 with Jonathan and Rome Beauty parentage, Crimson Crisp is an excellent option for no spray and organic orchards. We are sharing Crimson Crisp on Geneva 935 dwarfing rootstock, making it easier to pick, prune, and maintain than standard sized trees. Dwarfing trees are more precocious than standards, bearing fruit earlier in age! Requiring the support of a stake or trellis, this vigorous rootstock holds up against weed competition better than other dwarfing rootstocks and doesn’t sucker, as well.

Tree shipping is limited to the following states: CT, DE, IA, IL, IN, MD, ME, MI, MN, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, RI, VT, WI, WV

Note: Trees must be purchased separately from all other items like seeds and tools. Thank you, Friends!

Description

*Bare-root apple trees will begin shipping mid-April 2022*

A delightful mid-season dessert apple ripening at the end of September, Crimson Crisp 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, Crimson Crisp practically beams! Tiny russet dots scatter the 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, Crimson Crisp is an excellent option for no spray and organic orchards. Though Crimson Crisp has low to moderate vigor, they otherwise are very grower friendly.
