Franklin Apple Tree


The Franklin Apple Tree, named after Benjamin Franklin, is renowned for its exceptional taste and visually captivating appearance. With medium to large-sized apples boasting a deep red, smooth, and glossy skin, biting into a Franklin apple reveals a burst of juiciness and a harmonious balance of sweetness and subtle tartness, making it ideal for snacking or culinary creations.
