Nehou Apple ScionwoodThis is a twig for grafting. Early Fall. Full bittersweet cider apple. Probably from Nehou, Normandy, France, before 1900. Introduced by HP Bulmer Ltd, Hereford, England, circa 1920.
Best for blending with other early fall ripeners. Roundish-conic medium-sized yellow fruit, often with a pinkish blush. Soft, juicy, low-acid, sweet and astringent. (SG 1.057, acidity 1.7g/L, tannin 6g/L)
Probably brought from France long ago and renamed. Although called Nehou in English cider literature, as far as we can tell, there’s no French cider apple by that name. Boré and Fleckinger’s comprehensive Pommiers à Cidre: Variétés de France has no listing. Midseason bloomer. Z4.
