Court Pendu Plat is one of the oldest known apples, dating back to the 1600s and possibly earlier. Inspite of this it is a modern-looking apple with an attractive bi-coloured red/orange flush. The flattened ("plat") shape is quite distinctive.
The flavour is aromatic with a noticeable fruity peardrop overtone, and the flesh is quite dense. The interesting flavour carries over into the juice, which can be used to add a sweet component to cider blends.
