Product Description

We have stopped shipping plants for this planting season.

We will begin taking reservations for plants in July to be delivered next season.  Please check back with us then.

Generally ships from mid December- May.

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.
