Mutsu (Crispin)

Mutsu is an unusually versatile apple. Its large size and juicy acidity make it an excellent apple for the kitchen. Slices keep their shape when baked, but it can also be cooked for apple sauce, and slices can be dried too.

Its Golden Delicious parentage also lends it an excellent sweet flavor for eating fresh, particularly if you like sharper apples. In a good year from a good tree, Mutsu's crisp sharp-sweet flavour can be very good indeed.

There are many good dual-purpose apples but most of them are better at cooking than for eating fresh or vice versa. Mutsu is equally good in both roles.
