French Apples - Hidden Gems @ Geneva?
I know there are more than a few of you here that have a thing for heirlooms or rare varieties.
I combed thru some French varieties on the USDA site.
These were offered in their 2012 catalog and could be ordered.
I found a bunch of them interesting from the descriptions.
Might be worth considering if you are thinking about throwing a mystery variety out there.
Court Pendu Gris - Very sweet, aromatic, russet.
Double Bon Pommier - Late, sweet, sub-acid.
Fenouillet Gris - Sweet & Anised
Fenouillet de Ribours - Russet & Anised
Muscadet de Dieppe - Ringing endorsement for cider
Pigeonnet Blanc - Midseason Green/Red
Rambour Franc - Eary Vinous
Reinette Jamin - Giant Green Apple
Anyone heard of, or tried any of these?
