Variety Comments
Akane Should be used shortly after purchasing. The skin is thin and usually tender enough so that it doesn't need peeling. They retain their shape well when baked and will maintain their tartness.  Akane apples comes highly recommended as a dessert apple, with an invigorating, tart taste and a marked aroma. It is a cross between the well-known Jonathon and the obscure Worcester Pearmin. Beneath its thin skin, the bright white flesh is juicy and crisp. If you leave the peels on, Akane will make a pinkish sauce with a very good flavor; strain the sauce after cooking. Pie slices keep their shape. The apples can be dried successfully. 
This medium sized apple has a deep black-red, glassy skin 
and yellowish flesh. It's tart and sprightly flavor is great 
fresh or cooked, especially as applesauce. A very good 
keeper, it will last up to 8 months in a refrigerator.
