Calville Blanc Apple Tree
Tender, sweet, spicy, flavorful, yellowish white flesh, and banana-like aroma. Calville Blanc Apple (Calville Blanc d'Hiver) is a medium to large fruit that has a flat-round shape that is pale green with light red dots on sunny side. The bottom half is sharply segmented; segment lines often extend to the stem.
Calville Blanc is excellent for sauce, cooking and dessert. It is an excellent keeper, contains vitamin C, and turns yellow in storage. This precocious bearer ripens from late October to December. Its best quality is reached after the first few crops. Harvest in late mid-season, just after Jonagold. It is usually harvested while green, turning yellow and reaching peak flavor a month or so after picking. The tree is a vigorous grower with weeping side limbs. Estimated chilling requirement is 800-1000 hours. Pollinator is required.
