How to grow
The key characteristic of Court Pendu Plat is its very late blooming, which makes it useful for areas with late spring frosts, and for cross-pollinating with other late-blooming varieties.
Court Pendu Plat is cold hardy and, as is often the case with very old apple varieties, has naturally good disease resistance.
