Michelin Apple Tree


MICHELIN is an old and long-popular English cider apple which originated with M. Legrand of Yvetot, Normandy, around 1872. It was named after M. Michelin, a well-known promoter of cider apples. The apple was introduced into England in 1884 by the Woolhope Naturalists’ Field Club. The fruit is small-medium, conical, ribbed and pale green dotted with russet and sometimes slightly blushed. Along with Dabinett, it is one of the most reliable croppers. The tree is medium-sized with an upright multi-leader habit. With its sweet astringent flesh and soft tannin juice, it is best used for blending with other midseason varieties. Ripens late October to November.
