:: Akane, Apple
Akane is an attractive, early season, medium sized, bright red, apple with an unusually good balance of sweet and sharp flavors. The flesh is firm rather than crisp, but with plenty of juice.
Akane was developed in Japan in the 1930s, and represents an unusual marriage of the classic English early variety, Worcester Pearmain, and the high quality American heritage apple variety, Jonathan. Because of this heritage, the Akane is an excellent dessert apple, with a sweet spicy flavor and distinct aroma.
Akane is very reliable, even in poor fruit years you can count on this tree to have fruit on it!
Suggested pollinators for the Akane apple are the Fuji, Gala, Granny Smith and the Golden Delicious.
