Bulmer’s Norman

Bulmer’s Norman was imported from Normandy, France to England in the early 1900s by the cider making company H.P. Bulmer. This variety didn’t even have a name when it arrived but quickly grew in popularity for use in making cider. Pale and speckly, these apples are juicy. But are they tasty? Take a guess…. they may be the worst tasting apples yet. What they do exceptionally well, though, is create an excellent base apple for cider blends. Bulmer’s Norman apples are one of the most resilient varieties in the world, shrugging off bad weather and plant disease like it’s nothing. They add firm, medium tannins and can assist in lowering the acidity of a cider to mellow it out.
