Characteristics of Medaille d Or Trees:
  • Use: Cider. Bittersweet.
  • Spur Bearer: suitable for cordons & espaliers, trained on wires.
  • Tree's growth habit: Average vigour. Spreading form.
  • Harvest: Mid-Late November
  • Cider apples should be pressed for their juice as quickly as possible.
General description of Medaille d Or:
These bittersweet cider apples aren't quite full bodied enough to make a great brew alone, they should ideally be blended with other varieties. However, they do have a punchy, fruity flavour and yield a high alcohol content. The fresh juice is too astringent for most people's tastes.
Because this tree flowers late, it often misses spring frosts and it is a sound choice for planting in the North.

Rootstocks:
All of our Medaille d Or trees are grown on MM106 rootstocks.

Pollination Partners for Medaille d Or:
Your trees are self sterile and their flowers must be pollinated to make fruit.
Medaille d Or is in pollination Group H.
This means that they will cross-pollinate with other apple trees in pollination Groups G & H.
Because this tree flowers late, it is good for frosty areas.

See our Guide to Apple Tree Pollination for a full list of partners & more tips about pollination.

Medaille d Or Disease notes:
Disease resistance: Scab, Brown Rot.

History & Parentage:
This French variety was bred in 1865 by M. Godard of Bois Guillaume. The Woolhope Naturalists Field Club brought it to Britain about 20 years later.
