Binet Rouge Apple Scionwood (Spring 2021)


A traditional French bittersweet cider apple.

Binet Rouge is a cider apple from Normandy. It is a productive and precocious cropper, although the tree can be a sluggish grower and it tends to biennialism. It is mildew, fireblight, and scab susceptible. Late blooming and fairly cold hardy, Binet Rouge is known to survive at low zone 4, where other European cider varieties do not. It blooms for a long period, making it a useful pollenizer in the cider orchard. This apple is used exclusively in cider making and it is not suitable for fresh eating.

This small, hard apple is a staple for French cider and Calvados (apple brandy) makers, producing a high-quality, aromatic, bittersweet juice that ferments to roughly 8% alcohol. It matures late October in upstate New York.
