Sundowner (Cripps Red) Review
"Pink Lady's Ugly Brother"
The ugly brother of the Pink Lady, the Sundowner apple also known as Cripps Red, lacks the panache of its more popular sister but works with what its got to carve out an amicable reputation when not lost in the shadow of its superior sibling. Tart off the tree and sweeter as time goes on, the Sundowner fecklessly swats at a relevance it will never obtain as it attempts to discern an identity apart from “Pink Lady’s brother”. Alas, the writing is on the wall for this genetic lottery loser as it will never overcome its less-than-stellar appearance and upsettingly stupid name to be seen for the complex array of untapped potential it wishes it was.

Sundowning refers to people suffering from Alzheimer’s who decline mentally late in the day, so it does seem like a very poor choice for a name.
Red sun over paradise?
Haven’t had the chance to try either. I hope to find them one day
