    The U.S. Apple Association shares facts and recipe ideas for the Crispin apple.

    Female Speaker: Hello Crispin! Bright, large, and in charge, this apple was originally called the Mutsu in honor of its Japanese heritage. Crispin's yellow-green background and sometimes orange-red blush pretty much make it a rainbow of colors.

    This sweet apple is delicious when eaten fresh, but also great for baked goods like muffins and cakes. Not to mention it's ideal for freezing, cooking into sauces, or for homemade cider. They are available fall through summer. And like all apples, they are low calorie and fat, sodium and cholesterol free. I personally love slicing and spreading them with walnut butter rolled in granola. This variety delivers a firm, but sweet flavor adventure, whether it's in a dish or for a treat. So check out the Crispin apple.
