The Crispin apple tree produces a sweet flavoured, late season eating apple that juices well and is great for adding to a cider blend. Because it is quite coarse textured it also cooks beautifully, holding its shape. Like many thick-skinned apples, Crispin apples store wonderfully well, lasting comfortably into spring. The green young fruit turns yellow when ripe, ending up looking like a bit like a huge Golden Delicious
