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.

Storage Hints

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.

    Escargot had their heyday in the 1970s, when everyone ate them with garlic butter and bought the Escargot dishes for home use (but couldn't actually bring themselves to buy the slimy little critters for use in their own kitchen.) You may wish to finally try cooking up Escargot in garlic sauce in your own kitchen. Mind you, you could simmer golf balls in that sauce and they would taste good.
