Muscadet de Dieppe… Try saying that ten times fast. Finally some French representation in our apple variety! These apples aren’t very pretty, but they taste pretty good in cider. Used in France for over 200 years, these cider-exclusive apples are soft and great for pressing. Little is known about Muscadet de Dieppe aside from the fact it originated near the port of Dieppe in Normandy, France. It was commonly grown in the area since 1750 at least. It is a bittersweet cider apple that’s highly-thought of among French cider fans. But much like lots of our other cider apples, they aren’t great to eat.
