History Somewhat the same background story as Ben Nare. Good results from Kise led them to contact Rex Brennan to give name to the variety. This happened at the time Johannes Thorsrud was about to retire from Kise, and the naming was a “retirement gift” from SCRI to him. Arnfinn Nes suggested several names, and the breeder chose ‘Ben Tron’, which the variety received in 1992.

Ripens approx. a week before Narve Viking with us, and is almost without the astringent aftertaste, for those who prefer it.
