The Black Barn Farm Shop is a collection of practical, beautiful and edible items that reflect what we use (tools), what we’ve grown (heritage fruit trees + berries + other edible  must haves) and what we’ve created (book + seeds).

Our life is seasonal, tasty and intentionally simple and our shop is about sharing  the fruits of our labour – so-to-speak- so you can take a little bit of the good life into your life.

Akane - bare rooted

In stock
Product Details

The flesh is white, crisp, coarse-textured and somewhat chewy. Sweet-tart and juicy. Very aromatic with a hint of strawberry flavour. Often harvested before its prime because the skin colours very early, but flavour and aroma is at its peak when it is allowed to fully ripen. Once it is ripe, the Akane is one of the best. Also cooks well, holding its shape when baked in pies. Apple sauce made from this apple is pleasantly sweet tart and pink if cooked with the peel on. It also makes wonderful dried apple rings and excellent apple pie. Resistant to black spot.
