In the early 19th century HP Bulmer & Co. began planting orchards in Hereford, and this unknown variety imported from the Normandy region of France quickly became a cidermaking favorite. The Bulmer Cider Co. played a large role in the development of English cider production and apple varieties, and Bulmer’s Norman was grafted and planted widely.
The large irregular yellow-green fruit features hard and bitter tannins and presses into a juice that ferments quickly—excellent for commercial cider production. These extremely vigorous trees were also known as “stem builders” and used as a rootstock for other varieties.
Triploid: not suitable for pollinating other varieties. Blooms mid-to-late season. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
