Russian or Ukrainian origin. Probably named after the famous Russian apple variety (Belyi Naliv), as the fruits looks like the apples just before turning color.
First offered in the Seed Savers 1996 Yearbook by Seed Savers Heritage Farm, Decorah, Iowa, seed source unknown. Likely the same as Belyi Naliv.
Determinate, compact regular leaf plants produce 2-7 oz. medium-sized, round and oblate fruit. Turns color from green to white-yellowish color just before turning red. Excellent sweet flavor. Not a lot of foliage cover, so pruning is not recommended. Tolerant of cool and wet weather in early spring.
