Court Pendu Plat is derived from Corps Pendu, referring to the shortness of the stem. Recognized in France by early 1600's for its exceptional qualities. Skin is greenish-yellow becoming flushed with orange-red with short broken stripes. A good cropper with rich, aromatic fruit with a good balance of sugar and acid; the flavor further develops after harvest. Court Pendu Plat was also referred to as the "Wise Apple" since it's suitable for areas with late spring frost since it blooms very late; hence possessing the wisdom to bloom late in spring.
