A traditional bittersweet cider apple from France. Also known as Belle Fille de la Manche.

"Belle Fille" grown from USDA scion, this is Belle Fille de la Manche. This tree is a triploid and will require two diploid pollenizers for full fertility. It is highly susceptible to fireblight. The fruit is used exclusively in cider making and it is not suitable for fresh eating.

The apple is somewhat flat, and the skin has a red blush and streaking over a greenish-yellow background.

Clean vs. Regular

Our clean scion is harvested from trees grown on G.16, which is extremely sensitive to viruses. These trees would not have survived if the scion contained viruses. Our clean wood has not been lab tested. Regular = may contain one of the common latent viruses; this is not usually a problem and can be used with most rootstocks.
