cluster of 'Akane' applesDescriptive and growing information for the ‘Akane’ apple, (pronounced ah-KAH-nay), has been added to the Plants We Grow list under In the Garden on the main menu bar.

Or you can follow the quick link here.

I am certainly enjoying this delicious eating apple but definitely, they should be kept in the fridge for keeping. Outside of cold storage their crispness starts to fade after two weeks or so. Unfortunately, I needed more fridge space this harvest season and moved the ‘Akane’ apples downstairs to my cool pantry. Left them there for about a week and a half and their crispness has faded. But still good!
