CC is very tasty crisp, hard, red, holds on the tree tight, even when fully ripe. Keeps into February crisp even at 40 deg garage, 1/2 flavor then, almost indistinct from Pixie Crunch. Excellent for espalier because of long holding , clear red and NO Scab

My new favorite apple.

My tree of this variety sadly only produced one apple this year, but what an apple it was! I hope my tree will share many more of these crisp, sweet, slightly tart, juicy delights with me the coming season. This apple has an outstanding texture.
