Kaferian apple

A Kaferian apple tree

The Kaferian apple was a type of apple from Kaferia. A typical Kaferian apple resembled a pomegranate, had dark seeds inside and grew on a tree.

Kaferian apples were the first form of food created by Gary Mitchell after gaining psionic powers in 2265. He told Elizabeth Dehner that whenever he had visited Kaferia he had always favored the native apples. (TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before")

In the script of "Where No Man Has Gone Before", Kaferian apples were described as "huge red fruit" and the tree on which they grow was referred to as "a low, odd-shaped tree."
While never seen on-screen, the cover of the Handbook of Exobiology featured Kaferian apples as well as Talosian singing plants. [1] A Kaferian apple tree was also illustrated on the front cover of A Child's Garden of Lifeforms in Our Galaxy. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion, p. 579)
