The juice would normally be blended with juice from other varieties to produce a balanced cider.

Like a number of traditional English and French cider varieties, Vilberie is very late-blooming - in southern England or northern France it will typically flower in the last week of May. This can make cross-pollination an issue unless you have other late-flowering varieties available, although it seems to have reasonable self-fertility.
