Dula Beauty Apples were first grown from Limbertwig apple seeds planted around 1877 by a Julius Abram Dula (1834 – 1915) in Lenoir, Caldwell County, North Carolina. Dula did fruit breeding as a hobby, and introduced fruit spraying in his area.
The apple is mentioned in a “what to grow” recommendation by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture in 1908.
