I don't know anything about the comma in English in this case, but I am aware of the fact that in other languages there are more adequate equivalents for "hanem" - e.g. "sondern" in German or "sino" in Spanish.

Actually the comma is fine in English, though it is optional.

"the apple is not Hungarian rather Dutch or Belgian" is another good answer, IMO
