Malus domestica 'Mettais'
Fill in the form below and we will notify you when Mettais cider apple trees are back in stock. If we do not get any more this season you can contact us in June to pre-order for next season.
Mettais is one of the few French traditional cider varieties that can be used for single-varietal cider, as well as blended cider and calvados. It produces a bittersweet juice.
Mettais blooms early, but is readily pollinated by other early-blooming apple varieties.
Like most French cider varieties it is quite susceptible to many of the apple diseases found in the US, particularly fireblight.
