Excellent medium sized fruit with a very firm, crisp texture and superb flavor.
Sundowner®, sometimes referred to as Cripps Red or Cripps II, is the lesser-known sibling of Pink Lady®. A warm-climate apple that needs long hot summers to ripen, it also has a low-chill requirement, so it can tolerate winters where temperatures are rarely below freezing. It matures very late – after Pink Lady® and Granny Smith. Sundowner® lacks the distinctive pink blush of Pink Lady®, but displays a classically appealing crimson skin with a green undertone. The medium-sized fruit has a very firm, crisp texture and fine-grained flesh with superb flavor. This variety is very productive.
