The Akane apple is round to conical and medium-sized. It has a green-yellow skin covered with a bright red color, often with lenticels. Under the skin, it has a dense, firm white flesh with some juice. It has good balance of sweet and sharp flavours—some people taste a mild strawberry, ro raspberry flavour.
This variety is great for fresh eating but can also be dried as well as cooked. Akanes keep their shape when cooked or baked. Because their flavor and sweetness can be mild, use in recipes with brown sugar, raisins, and other sweeter apples. Although they brown fairly quickly, they also make nice additions to salads. Akanes, like many early variety apples, do not keep well. Keep in the refrigerator or other cool, dry place, and use within a week.
