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.

The result of a cross between Stark Jongrimes and Golden Delicious and introduced in 1974. The variety was created by French plant breeding company Georges Delbard in Malicorne. The Delcorf’s harvesting time sits between that of Discovery and Cox’s O.P. Depending on the year, it can be harvested anywhere from 10 to 15 August into early September. Standard Delcorf needs to be picked repeatedly because of its unduly light flush.
