traditional cider apple - not at all a desert apple

John D on Apr 13, 2016
I am very interested in preserving heritage, or antique, fruit varieties. Today's new strains and varieties can be delicious, but there is just something special about enjoying an apple that someone else enjoyed hundreds of years ago. Also, it can't hurt to grow an apple that is considered a gourmet culinary treat in France. One Calville Blanc apple is also reported to have a higher vitamin C content than one orange can provide.
