A very attractive apple with a distinct banana flavor and aroma when fully ripe. The apple originated in Marion County, South Carolina and was sold there and in North Carolina until the early 1900’s. In 1900, it was trademarked by the J. Van Lindley Nursery of Greensboro, North Carolina. The fruit is slightly conical, having deep yellow skin with a faint red blush and pink and red stripes. Ripens August to September.
