Kent apples are a medium-sized variety, with an orange-red flush and red stripes overlaid on a greenish-yellow background; some fruits also have prominent russetting. They are round or conical in shape. The cream-colored flesh can tend toward coarse andhe skin can be tough. The Kent apple’s flavor depends on the amount of sun available during the growing season, as well as how long it has been in storage. Years without much sun may produce Kent apples that are more metallic tasting, while sunny growg seasons produce a much better flavor—rich, aromatic, and balanced between sweet and acid. Kent apples also tend to sweeten over time, and are at their most sweet and aromatic after sitting in storage well into the winter.
Kent apples are available in the late fall through winter.
