Mutsu

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.
