Calville Blanc d' Hiver Apple Scionwood

2.00

From Normandy, France 1598. These are prized by French chefs for baking but you may want to try one fresh before you consign them to a pie. These will hold, in fact we found a sack of them in the barn this last April and they were not just fine, they were amazingly delicious. Hard, crunchy and intensely lemony.  These are late season apples with a lovely lobed shape. It also makes a wonderful single varietal cider. We find these apples modestly challenging to grow organically being somewhat susceptible to scab and scale. We have a warning for those ordering this sign wood. We have encountered santa rosa scale on these trees and while we only harvest scion wood from the younger trees with less scale evident if you are concerned about this you should purchase scion wood elsewhere. We have had much success grafting this variety.
