Sansa was developed in Japan, a product of a Gala x Akane cross. It picks one week before Gala and resembles Gala in both fruit color and firmness. Sansa has excellent fresh eating qualities and keeps well. This variety is very tolerant to heat and has, in turn, performed well in warmer districts. The tree is non-vigorous, and the structure can be somewhat challenging.
