Sangre De Toro Apple on G.11 (Spring 2022)


A traditional cider apple from Spain.

Sangre de Toro ("Bulls Blood") is a medium-vigor tree that blooms early. It is moderately resistant to scab and mildew, and a tendency to biennialism is likely. In our orchard we have found that this variety is somewhat susceptible to fireblight when pressure is high. Ripening time is mid-October in NY state. Sangre de Toro is a cider apple; it is not suitable for fresh eating.

This is an Asturian cider (sidra) apple, approved by The Regulatory Council of Origin Cider of Asturias. The fruit is a medium-sized, somewhat flat red apple with greenish flesh that is stained red near the skin. It yields a juice that is classified as "acida."

Spanish cider apples have not yet been widely tested in the United States, but the native climate of these apples should be taken into consideration. Asturias enjoys abundant year-round rainfall, mild summers, and temperate winters. Costal winter temperatures are typically in the 50s and summer temperatures are in the 70s.
