The Ben Davis apple was extremely popular in the 1800s for its reliable and hardy characteristics. We love the Ben Davis apples in pies and other desserts. They are similar to McIntosh and Cortland apples. It was widely grown across the Southern US in the 1800s and now is extremely rare. The origins of this apple are unknown but it is believed to have originated in the US South before the Civil War. In Maine this is a late season apple, ripening in mid October.
