Developed in the 1970s at the Morioka Research Station in Japan, the Sansa Apple is a standard cross between the Akane and Gala apples. This early apple is primarily yellow that turns bright red when nearing maturing. Excellent in apple sauce and apple butter, the Sansa Apple is sweet and juicy while providing a delightful little tang.

Similar to other early apples, it is delicious off the tree and are best if used within a week of harvest. It is generally considered an early Gala apple if not a little tarter. Tree is of average vigor but produces a large amount of apples. The tree has some natural disease resistance (particularly to apple cedar rust) but should be sprayed and kept along with other trees.
