Bulmer’s Norman was an unnamed variety imported from France in the early 20th century by Bulmer’s Cider Company of Hereford. It produces a very vigorous, spreading tree, with fruit starting to mature by mid-October. Apples are large yellowgreen with a resemblance to Morgan Sweet. The juice has a hard and bitter tannin taste on its own and should be blended, but fermentation is fast. It is more commonly used as a stem builder to develop strong trunks in one or two years, which can then be top worked as standards of another variety.
