Discovered as a sport of Topaz. Topaz was originally grown and bred at the Institute of Experimental Botany (IEM) in Czechia in the 1990s. Noticed to be considerably redder with more saturated color, the Crimson Topaz (also CrimsonTopaz) retains similar characteristics to it parent apple. It is a small to medium sized apple.

The skin in thin with a deep crimson color which covers coarse-grained creamy colored flesh. This apple is clearly meant for eating- its flavor being a balance of sweet and tart. The apple has a deep stem and calyx which, when cut in half, gives the apple a slight pumpkin shape. The tree retains its apple for a longer period of time; holding onto them into November. The tree also does not tend toward biennialsim but annual pruning helps prevent crowding. Ships Spring 2024
