Hunge traces its origins to North Carolina sometime in the 1700s. It is a classic apple long valued for its many wonderful qualities. It was rediscovered in 1986 after having been lost for quite some time. Hunge is one of the few apples that grow well in coastal plain areas. Fruit is large with light green skin mostly covered with dark red and overlaid with a fine russet coat. The yellowish-white flesh is crisp, juicy and aromatic with a pleasant wine flavor.
