Alkmene Apples



Alkmene Apples are round, with smooth yellowish-green skin, with anywhere from 1/2 to 3/4 of the surface covered by an orangey-red flush. There is also some russeting at the bottom.

The flesh is crisp and juicy.

Alkmene Apples have a rich, tangy flavour and smell.

They are good for fresh-eating.

Bon mots

"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."

-- Anthony Bourdain (American food writer. 15 June 1956 - )
