Binet Rouge Apple Tree

$18.95

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: Most of our fruit trees (apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, quince, and cherry) are grafted/budded and are 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. The other trees are seedlings, such as pawpaw, mulberry, persimmon, shade, berry, and flowering trees which range from 18-36" tall.

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