“ooOOooooOooo! that sparkle!’ exclaimed Chelsey at our 2022 tasting! Indeed, Royal Crimson Topaz is one of our new favorite apples, deliciously resilient, beloved for crisp snow white flesh and brilliant sweet-tart scrumptiousness. We love them straight from the tree as well as in apple strudel, which is its Czech claim to fame, from which this gem hails. We also love that Royal Crimson Topaz is slow to turn brown once cut, making it great for salads and pre-cut kid snacks. Fabulous in fall, Crimson Topaz stores 3 to 4 months in the cellar, allowing the important and prolonged consumption of your favorite apple pastries…!
Our Organic Royal Crimson Topaz Dwarf Apple Trees are bareroot nursery stock, and are graded to a minimum of 30” tall when Fall-dug from the nursery. All of our Organic Dwarf Apple varieties are grafted onto dwarfing apple rootstock Geneva 41, making them easier to pick, prune and maintain than standard sized trees. Cold hardy as well as resistant to Fireblight, Phytophthora and replant disease, Geneva 41 bears fruit in just a few years. Most Apple varieties will grow between 6 and 10 feet tall at maturity, requiring full support from staking or trellising throughout their lifespan. The reduced tree size allows trees to be spaced 4 to 6 feet apart if planted in a row, making Apple varieties grafted onto Geneva 41 good candidates for Espalier or other trellis systems.
Royal Crimson Topaz needs another Apple variety nearby for Pollination! All of the Apples we offer are compatible pollination partners.
These rootstocks and some of our fruit tree varieties are patented... to learn more, hop over here.
