DESCRIPTION

An early season apple, Benoni's smooth skin is a beautiful wine red, or orange-yellow, with red stripes, and its yellow flesh is crisp, sweet, and juicy.

HISTORY

Benoni originated in Dedham, Massachusetts, in the early 1800s, and was once cultivated widely throughout the United States. Benoni's popularity waned due to the smallness of its fruit, and its poor, biennial bearing habit.
