Fruit ripening time: May - June


This apple has a unique flavour that is sprightly, with the sweet, honeyed flavour of a Golden Delicious, a balance of tart, and is very delicately spiced. A flavour you won't forget!


Quite a large size apple with yellow green skin, and can have a red blush on the sunny side. A cross between Golden Delicious and Indo.


Can be prone to bitter pit when excessive vigour is encouraged with high Nitrogen fertilisers or excessive Winter pruning.


Uses: Excellent fresh eating. Good to use in salads, for juice, and drying. Mutsu also has excellent baking qualities and will keep its shape when cooked. Stores very well.
