Title: Mutsi Crispin Apple
Author: APS
The following item concerning the Japanese apple variety, Mutsu, by R. F. Carlson, is reprinted from "Compact Fruit Grower":
"Most pomologists, fruit growers, nurserymen and others are familiar with double named varieties. For example, the Beacon-Fenton apple, and Bartlett-Williams pear no doubt have puzzled many, but affected sales and taste very little. Now, another doublenamed apple has come to the forethe Mutsu-Crispin. Some of our English counterparts came up with a name more descriptive for the Mutsu variety. The apple is crisp in bite and taste -hence the name Crispin, in place of Mutsu."
