Apple Egremont Russet

Apple Egremont Russet

A dessert apple dating back to Victorian times, Malus domestica Egremont Russet is the most popular and widely grown russet-type apple. The tree is small with a bushy habit, and is a good, regular cropper, easy to grow, and a spur-bearer. Suitable for colder, rainier areas; the fruit is very resistant to scab. The fruit is small, golden-yellow, and heavily russeted, with greenish-white flesh. It has the classic russet taste, dry and nutty, with a good balance of sweetness and acidity – a delicious little apple. Partially self-fertile, but crops better with a pollination partner. Apple Egremont Russet holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
