|Malus domestica 'Akane'|
|Hybrid parentage||'Jonathan apple' x 'Worcester Pearmain'|
|Origin||Template:Country data Japan, 1937|
Akane was developed by the Morika Experimental Station of Japan sometime between 1900 and 1949, by crossing a Jonathan apple with a Worcester Pearmain, and was introduced to the United States in 1937, where it is very popular.
Akane is of moderately good disease resistance, best at warm climates but tolerates cold also. It is flowering mid-late season, and harvesting early-mid season. Is self-sterile and needs to be cross pollinated.
Akane carries the fruit shape of the English Worcester Pearmain, and the unusually good balanced flavor of the Jonathan. Shape is flattened to hearth shaped. Fruits are of very good flavor, a blend of sweet and sharp, preferable for eating, keeps shape in cooking. Flesh color is white, with a yellow tinge. Does not oxidize quickly. Crispy, but not too dense and easy to eat. Skin color is red. And keeps fresh about one week.
