Sansa is a red, medium-large apple with a deep pink blush on a yellow skin. Its firm flesh is light green with red in color. This tender, extra sweet, and juicy variety is picked in early September, and it keeps well.
A newer variety on the market, Sansa is a cross between Gala and Akane. It was developed in Japan in 1989.
