Colapuy is a late-season dessert apple from northern France where it is still found in old orchards. The tree has a reputation for good disease resistance and excellent cold-hardiness, but also a tendency towards biennial bearing.

The dark red apples have a well-balanced sweet / sharp flavor. They are picked in late October / early November, and are at their best after storage for 1-2 months.

Colapuy, also known as Colapuis, is thought to be have been brought to northern France from the Crimea in the 19th century by a returning soldier, Nicholas Dupuis.
