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.

Alkmene Apples don't store well.

History Notes

Alkmene Apples were developed in Germany in the 1930s, but not released until 1972, from a cross between Cox's Orange Pippin and Duchess of Oldenburg.
