Tarecap Bitter Cider Apple


Tarecap Bitter Cider Apple

Fall. Bittersweet cider apple. Unknown parentage. Old seedling tree discovered by Thomas Foote, Hiram, ME.

Mildly astringent, mellowing after frost and hanging on the tree indefinitely. Good potential for late-season cider pressings. The round long-stemmed 2–3" fruit, relatively large for a cider apple, is an attractive ruddy rusty red over muted yellow-green ground color. Thriving in MOFGA’s no-spray low-intervention South Orchard, where it is displaying natural disease and pest resistance. There’s a good crop on the trees there this year—we’ll let you know how the cider turns out! Uncertain bloom time. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
