A thin-skinned apple with bright white flesh that is juicy and crisp. It has an invigorating, tart taste. Akane is great for fresh eating and desserts. It retains its shape well when baked and will maintain its tartness. A cross between the well-known Jonathan and the obscure Worcester Pearmin, it was developed in Japan, where “Akane” means red. It ripens in mid to late August.
