Bedan des Parts Apple

Bedan des Parts Apple

History: Bedan des Parts is a French cider apple from Normandy that originated in the 1800s. It is still a popular cider apple in the area today.

Why We Grow It: The continuing popularity of this apple is due to the good quality bittersweet juice it produces that blends well with other varieties. Although a late bloomer, it is quite a heavy cropper.
