The Shizuka bears a green to gold skin with an occasional pink blush, similar to its sister apple, the Mutsu. Its flesh is crisp and yellowish-white and its flavor is mild and sweet, similar to that of the Golden Delicious, one of its parents. It is a good all-purpose apple. This variety was developed in Japan from a cross between Golden Delicious and Indo. It ripens in early to mid October.
