Ohrin apples are oblong in shape. They have yellow-green skins with white lenticels, and yellow-white flesh; sometimes the skin also has a red blush. They are very juicy and firm. The flavor reminds some of pineapple, pear, and honey. They are primarily sweet, with minimal tartness. Ohrins are a particularly aromatic apple as well, and smell just as good as they taste.
Ohrin apples are available in the mid-fall into the winter months.
Ohrin apples (Malus domestica) are a popular Japanese variety, also sometimes spelled Orin. The Ohrin is a cross between the Indo and Golden Delicious, the same as the well-known Mutsu.
Apples, including the Ohrin, have many important nutrients such as Vitamins A and B and dietary fiber. Their nutrient content, along with the presence of phytonutrients and antioxidants, makes apples a good way to strengthen the immune system, keep the digestive system healthy, and protect against inflammation.
The extreme sweetness of the the Ohrin makes it a good choice for fresh eating rather than cooking. Choose firm apples that are free of bruises or cuts. Keep them in the refrigerator for up to two months.
The most popular apples in Japan are all very sweet, and Ohrins are no exception. Ohrins are the third-most grown apple in Japan.
The first Ohrins were bred in Aomori Japan, and were introduced in 1952. They are mostly grown today in Japan, but are also grown commercially in British Colombia, Canada.
