History and description of Feuille Morte

A Fench variety first described in 1948. The name which means "dead leaf" is derived from the fact that it blossoms very late and does not show any sign of life until well after most apple trees are in full leaf. A medium sized, flat shaped fruit. Smooth skinned and predominantly red flushed. Crisp and quite juicy, savoury with sometimes a hint of raspberry flavour. A tree of weak vigour.
