Reinette Descardre apple trees

Malus domestica
Reinette Descardre is listed in the RHS Plants for Pollinators
  • Picking season: Late
  • Self-fertility: Not self-fertile
  • Flowering group: 3

Reinette Descardre is a good quality dessert apple. It is a late variety, ready for picking in late September, but unlike most late-season varieties it does not keep particularly well.

The apples have a firm flesh with a sweeet fruity flavor.

Reinette Descardre was raised in the 1820s by Benoit Descardre, a nurseryman from Chenee, near Liege in the French-speaking region of Wallonia in Belgium. It is found throughout Wallonia and also in neighbouring areas of northern France.
