Calville Blanc d’Hiver Apple

Winter. Unknown parentage. France or Germany, 16th century. Also called White Winter Calville.

Famous as a dessert and cooking apple for more than 400 years. Steve Wood of Poverty Lane Orchards in Lebanon, New Hampshire, called it “the best culinary apple in the world.”

Large flattish pale green-yellow fruit with deep ribs and a dotted orange-red blush. Creamy-white aromatic fine-grained juicy flesh with a sweet distinctive effervescent flavor. Also recommended for vinegar, fresh cider and as a sharp (acid) component in fermented cider. Should be stored a month to reach peak flavor. Will keep until midwinter.

Very vigorous strongly upright vase-shaped tree with good branch angles. Not for coldest areas though certainly hardy to Zone 4. Blooms midseason. Z4-7. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees; semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
