Reinette Clochard is a traditional French dual-purpose apple. The apples have a strong sweet-sharp flavor which becomes sweeter in storage, and they will keep in a cold store into mid-winter.

Slices keep their shape when cooked, making this an ideal variety for many French-style patisserie cakes and desserts.

How to grow

Reinette Clochard was originally thought to be a "triploid" variety but research commissioned by the UK government department for environment food and rural affairs (defra) in 2010 did not support this. However it is perhaps safest to assume it might not be a good pollinator of other varieties.

In other respects, this variety is easy to grow.
