First grown in the Mutsu Province of Japan, these apples were introduced to the US after World War II in 1948. They are also known as Crispins and are like a large version of the Golden Delicious. Mutsu apples are a varsatile eating and cooking apple with a nice semi-sweet tart taste and crispy firm flesh. In Maine, Mutsus ripen in early to mid October and work excellently in apple pies.
