Flavor: Combines tartness and honeyed sweetness, with some floral notes
Approximate Ripening: Early October
Uses: Eating, salads
Trivia: SunCrisp, a combination of Golden Delicious and Cox’s Orange Pippin, was developed at Rutgers University by Dr. Fred Hough. It was introduced in 1994.
Notes: One of the prettier apples around, conical SunCrisp apples are light green shifting to yellow on one side and washed in fire-orange on the other. The flavor—not-too-sharp tartness combined with bright honey sweetness and a hint of floral notes—improves with age. SunCrisp doesn’t brown quickly, making it a great garnish for salads.
