Also known as: Bullett, Green Abram, North Carolina Greening

Bullet originated in the South in the 1800’s and was sold by several North Carolina nurseries from the 1850’s to the early 1900’s. Lee Calhoun says Bullet may be identical to North Carolina Keeper, another fine old Southern heirloom variety. Fruit medium sized with greenish skin, mostly covered with stripes and streaks of dull red and gray. Flesh is white and firm with a brisk flavor. Ripens very late Fall and is an excellent keeper.
