Calville Blanc


Pictured is the Calville Blanc d’Hiver which sources vary from being cultivated in the 1500’s to being a 1600’s apple of either French or German origin. The apple is mentioned by LeLecire (procurer for Louis XIII) at Orleans in 1627 and was grown by Thomas Jefferson at Monticello. The apple has marked shoulders and ridges, is very high in Vitamin C, and has a slightly tart, pleasant flavor.
