The Candy Crisp® apple is a large ribbed dessert apple with golden skin that is often blushed soft pink with white lenticels. It is shaped like a Red Delicious apple with the top wider than the bottom and knobs on its flooring. The Candy Crisp® apple lives up to its name being firm, juicy, and sweet. Some have described the Candy Crisp® apple as having pear taste and scent and lacking in apple flavor.
The Candy Crisp® apple is available in late fall.
The Candy Crisp® apple is from the species Malus Domestica. The Candy Crisp® apple tree was a chance seedling discovered in a red delicious orchard in New York and therefore thought to be a descendent of the red delicious apple. There are two sizes of Candy Crisp® apple trees: dwarf or semi dwarf.
Apples are high in fiber and contain vitamins and minerals, which are beneficial to body health.
The Candy Crisp® apple is best eaten raw. The Candy Crisp® apple combines well with plain yogurt due its sweetness.
New York City is a top apple grower in the United States. In the 1970s New York City used the “Big Apple” as its friendly nickname to promote tourism by making pins, T-shirts, and other items displaying a red apple.
The Candy Crisp® apple was discovered by chance in a New York apple orchard among red delicious apple trees. For this reason the red delicious apple is thought to be a parent of the Candy Crisp® apple.
