Court Pendu Plat – Roman 1400’s/England 1613

Although first recorded in England in 1613, the origin of Court Pendu Plat is ambiguous at best.  The uncertain origins of this variety is partially due to another commonly confused ancient variety known as Court Pendu Gris, which appears in accounts of Normandy abbeys of the early 15th century.  The Court Pendu Plat is known for it’s rich, fruity flavor and strong pineapple-like acidity.  For centuries, this variety has been valued for its outstanding dessert quality and vivid vermillion blush.
