Michelin is a traditional French hard cider apple variety producing a medium bittersweet juice.
Cider apple varieties tend to remain in use primarily in their area of origin but Michelin was imported to England in the 19th century and is arguably better known and more widely grown in England than in France.
Michelin is a good choice if you are new to growing cider-apples, as it is partially self-fertile, heavy-cropping, starts bearing from a young age, and unlike many European cider varieties, tends to be a regular (rather than biennial) bearer.
