Prime Red apples are in at Farmers Market (August 24, 2013)

We got some Prime Red apples at Farmer’s Market from Wasem’s Fruit Farm.

Prime Red is also known as Akane or Tokyo Rose. From Orange Pippin, an encyclopedia of apples:

Akane was developed in Japan in the 1930s, and represents an unusual marriage of the classic English early variety, Worcester Pearmain, and the high quality American heritage apple variety, Jonathan – and it is a marriage that works very successfully.
