Bred in 1963 at the Rutgers University Horticultural Research Farm by crossing and offspring of Cortland and Cox Orange Pippin with a Golden Delicious. The resulting apple was named NJ55 but with a striking orange hued apple is now called the SunCrisp Apple.
This is a large apple with a orange-red hue across its sun exposed sides. It carried many traits of its parents yet improves upon them. It is rated very highly in taste and is juicy, sweet, mild, and aromatic. It stores well, up to six months. The tree grows very upright and the apple matures mid to late season.
