Flavor: Cool, crisp cotton candy sweetness with strong pear notes
Approximate Ripening: Early October
Trivia: Thought to be a chance seedling of Red Delicious discovered in New York
Notes: CandyCrisp is sweetness turned up to 11. It’s best not to think of it as apple but rather a crunchy, Red Delicious-shaped piece of hardened corn syrup candy. The flavor is far more pear-like than apple-like. It’s a truly unique apple, the kind too polarizing for supermarkets but perfect for specialty growers. Give Candycrisp a try, and you just might find a new sweetheart!
