A Japanese, good early season variety. Akane is a hybrid of Jonathan and Worcester spearman apple cultivars. And features the juicy tart sweetness of Jonathan’s. “Sweet and sharp, preferable for fresh eating but keeps shape when cooked.”
These apples are fresh from A&A Orchards in Green Forest, AR. A&A Orchards is a pollinator-friendly orchard and recently became 100% solar powered. They're also implementing biodiversity throughout the orchard, and we think they grow excellent fruit as well.
