Egremont Russet is the most popular of the russet apples known for its very distinctive “nutty flavour”. It is quite a vigorous and hardy tree, steady and reliable cropper as well, and especially suited for east of Scotland type weather. Egremont Russet is partially self-fertile but will benefit if planted with another apple or another group such as Greensleeves, James Grieve or Katy. Classed as a dessert apple, it is medium sized with a delicate ‘nutty’ flavour, with an attractive dull gold flecked with yellow colour outer skin, and when you pick it up the skin feels like sandpaper – very different but exquisite. Bite into the russet and you experience a good balance between sweetness and sharpness – What an apple!! Season of use is October – December.
Where to Plant
Plant full sun for best fruiting and development results. Water well during dry spells and remember that most fruits are 90% water. Make sure the soil or planting hole is free draining and not waterlogged. Fertilise during the spring / summer.
