Gabishol, known to helovx as ‘the Polar apple,’ has a flesh similar in color and taste to the extinct North American red-delicious cultivar. A typical gabishol is the size of the helovx cantaloupe; some are known to grow larger—but larger varieties contain bitter flesh, which is used exclusively to make juice, wine, cider, or ale.

Gabishol rootstock was developed by engineers of the Second Ramaxian Gen, using Prunus collected by scouts throughout the lands between the poles. Gabishol orchards, called Gabishes, exist in the moist volcanic soils beneath the ice-sheet of North Western Ramaxia; as the planted trees grow they produce heat, thus melting the underside of the ice-sheets, allowing for a regular supply of water.
