An orange-red apple against a yellow background. The fruits have a Cox’s aroma: sweet-tart. The flesh is a creamy white and fairly firm to quite hard. Ideal variety to make apple sauce. The variety was created in Germany as a cross between Geheimrat Dr. Oldenburg and Cox’s Orange Pippin. It was marketed in 1962. Alkmene should be picked from late August to late September and can be stored for a limited length of time – no more than a few weeks.
