Definition of cider gum in English:
A fast-growing, hardy Tasmanian eucalyptus, widely grown in northern Europe.
- Eucalyptus gunnii, family Myrtaceae
- Eucalypts rarely grow as tall in our gardens as they do in nature: the cider gum may reach 60 feet and the snow gum 30 feet.
- A considerable number of very large cider gums occur around Brightlingsea, Essex, and are survivors of those planted there from the late 1887 onwards.
- ‘In the two most significant populations of Miena cider gums, all the trees appear to have stopped setting seed,’ he said.
