They have smooth, thick yellow skin flushed with dull red.
Inside, the yellowish flesh is juicy, finely-textured, tender and aromatic.
The apples have good flavour; some think they detect hints of vanilla.
Hall Apples were developed on a farm in Franklin County, North Carolina, belonging to a Mr Hall, sometime before the early 1800s. They were popular in the American South.
The apple was a progenitor of Magnum Bonum apples.
The apple was believed to have been extinct until rediscovered by a Tom Brown in the North Carolina mountains in 2002.
