Malus domestica 'Anna'
Anna is a good size Golden Delicious-style apple, with a pleasant un-demanding sweet/tart flavor. The apples ripen very early, often in June, and do not keep. The color varies from pale green all the way to deep red.
It might not be the greatest apple you ever tasted, but Anna is uniquely capable of setting fruit in warm semi-tropical climates, which are normally off-limits for apple production.
Some growers in very warm areas report that Anna will even produce two crops of apples a year, with a second bloom in August.

Anna is easy to grow and usually very productive. It is important to thin the fruitlets after the blossom sets to avoid over-production.
It is reported to need less than 300 chill hours (i.e. hours when the temperature falls below about 45F but still above freezing).
Anna appears to be at least partially self-fertile.

Anna was developed by Abba Stein at Ein Shemer in Israel in the 1950s, specifically for growing in low-chill climates.
