Mildly acidic, highly bitter and slightly astringent. Not for fresh eating! Strongly flavored juice, recommended for blending. (1.048 SG) Will add complexity and lots of pizzazz to even the dullest cider. Best pressing in the first two weeks of November. At our cider tasting in July 2018, the Bitter Pew cider received unanimous thumbs up.
Medium-sized angular conic fruit, deep dark lime green with a purple-red blush and prominent whitish dots. We found the medium-aged multi-stemmed tree in the remnants of an old orchard. When one of the old trees died decades ago, the rootstock sprouted and like a phoenix rose this wonderful tree. Now on trial in multiple locations. Blooms midseason. Probably Z4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
