Apple Ard Cairn Russet

Apple Ard Cairn Russet

An old Irish heritage dessert variety, Apple Ard Cairn Russet was discovered in Co. Cork in 1890, and named for the nursery which propagated it. The fruit is round, medium-sized, and a golden russet with an orange-red flush. The flesh is cream-coloured, dry and sweet, lacking acidity, and with a distinctive, banana-like flavour. The tree is upright and spreading, and moderately vigorous. A spur-bearer, and a heavy cropper, Apple Ard Cairn Russet is resistant to scab, so a good choice for damp areas.

This Irish Heritage Apple tree was originally saved and propagated by Irish Seed Savers in Scarriff, County Clare.
