William Crump is an interesting marriage of the complex sophisticated flavours of Cox's Orange Pippin with the refreshing fruity flavours of Worcester Pearmain.
Visually it is exactly what you would expect - it looks like a red-coloured Cox. You might also expect given this pedigree it would be an early-season apple like Worcester Pearmain, or mid-season like Cox - but it ripens a bit later in the season and keeps somewhat better than Cox as well

William Crump was raised by a Mr Carless of Rowe's Nurseries in Worcester at the start of the 20th century. It is a cross between Cox's Orange Pippin and Worcester Pearmain. It received the RHS Award of Merit in 1908.
