Pixie Crunch Apple
Pixie Crunch, or Co-op 33, is a 1971 cultivar of the PRI Institute grown at Purdue University. Descended from the Golden Delicious and Red Rome apples (amongst many others) this apple is prized for its crisp texture and disease resistance. The apple is small- medium is size with green base skin that blushes to a dark red color. Its flesh is yellow and extremely crispy. Its chosen name, Pixie Crunch, reflects these traits.
