Binet Rouge Apple Tree


The fruit of the Binet Rouge apple tree is considered one of the best bittersweet cider varieties. Consequently, cider makers use it for making Calvados (apple brandy) in France. The tree is susceptible to scab, powdery mildew, and fire blight. Lastly, it is cold hardy and can be grown in USDA cold hardiness zones 4-8.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Our grafted/budded apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, and cherry trees are about 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. Most other trees are seedlings ranging from 18-36" tall. You know if a tree is a seedling when the rootstock selected says "Seedling".

A rootstock primarily controls a tree's size and how early it bears fruit. Learn more about our specific rootstocks.
