Not as well known, perhaps, but Crispin apples are well suited for fresh-eating and in many recipes and dishes that call for apples!

Watch "Crispin Apple" Video.
Here's a sweet and juicy, firm textured and crispy white fleshed variety (grown right here in our GMO-free Bird-in-Hand orchards, of course!) that claims Golden Delicious as a parent. Crispin originated in the Mutsu province of Japan in pre-World War II days and (fittingly) is called Mutsu there. These may be just the ones if you enjoy Golden Delicious but wish they'd be a bit firmer. Besides that, there are Lancaster County folks who declare that applesauce from Crispin apples is the very best of all.

Six of that number include Clair Kauffman (our orchard manager), his wife Anna and their children! This family's preferred method of preparation is without addition of sugar but adding a bit of (award winning!) Apple Cider to the apples as they begin cooking. You and yours will enjoy trying these in your salads, cooked apple dishes and pies (here's one fine example), too.

Before we forget about applesauce though, allow us to inform you that we at the apple orchard think the Crispin variety would be naturally great "raw material" for embellishing anything like Sugar Free Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies with Banana & Chocolate Chips.

Still a bit unsure if Crispin is the one for you? Consider what these folks (who should know, you know) are saying!

"This cross between Golden Delicious and the Japanese Indo has a complex, spicy-sweet flavor reminiscent of anise and is great for eating or baking." Source: Eating Well website

A blogger who hails from a bit further east in the Pennsylvania Dutch country puts it this way, "The Crispin apple’s kitchen notoriety speaks well of its utility in that it goes swimmingly in applesauce recipes, all sorts of baking, including pies, and salads, too. It also pairs well with roasts, and the apple slices themselves roast well, to boot."

More great varieties grown on our farm which have similar attributes to Crispin include Golden Supreme and GoldRush.

Can you believe it? One needn't crawl in and out of a vehicle and spend time on the road to procur premium fresh apples. anymore! You can effortlesly and quickly order a quantity of Lancaster County grown Crispin apples that are packed with juice, crunch, flavor, and many healthful properties, right here and from the comfort of your digital device!



The boxes we use for shipping apples feature high-density foam cushioning. Each individual Crispin apple occupies its own foam slot for protection, and we pack the box with product that is of highest quality. However, we have no control over distance, storage, temperature, or handling during transit, so if the fruit arrives overripe or spoiled, we most likely will not offer a refund, although you're welcome to contact us about it. We offer 2nd Business Day and Next Business Day shipping for apple lovers who wish to take an extra step in protecting their fresh fruit purchase during shipping. This item is not available for sale in or to California, Oregon, and Washington.
