Gano Apples



Gano Apples have pale yellow skin, almost completely flushed with dark purplish red by the time they are fully ripe.

The flesh is off-white, firm, crisp and juicy, with a tangy, rich flavour.

The apples ripen in late September.

Some have thought that Gano Apples might be the same apple as Black Ben Davis. But others have pointed out that while Black Ben Davis apples are a solid dark red, Gano's dark red may be lighter in some places, and Gano tends to be slightly smaller.

History Notes

Gano Apples were noted first in 1880. They originated possibly in either Kentucky or Missouri, possibly from a variant bud graft of a Ben Davis tree.


They were popular in the Blue Ridge Mountain area of Virginia in the late 1800s / early 1900s.
