An interesting fact I found out while researching the Shizuka apple is that it will not pollinate other apple varieties. Hmmm.
Approximate Ripening Date: September 14th
Flavor: This sweet-tart, apple with a distinctive light, crisp flesh is a Golden Delicious type apple with good flavor.
Baking: The Shizuka will keep its shape when baked. It is also slow to brown when cut so it makes for a great salad apple.
History: Golden Delicious x Indo cross developed in Japan and released to the public in 1986.
