Egremont Russet Apple on G.41 (Spring 2022)


The best of the russeted apples.

Egremont Russet grows on an upright and productive tree. It is moderately vigorous, a reliable cropper, and scab resistant but somewhat susceptible to fireblight. This tree is partially self-fertile, but a pollenizer should be present for optimal productivity.

Prized as the most delicious of the English russets, this small, round apple is covered in a bronze russet under which an orange flush is often visible. The flesh is greenish yellow and richly flavored. Full flavor will develop in storage, when the flesh will also become drier. Tasters often describe Egremont Russet as "nutty," with a pear-like flavor and texture. This is a great storage apple and it pairs nicely with strong cheeses. Some cider makers have found it useful in blends.

First recorded in 1872, Egremont Russet is thought to have been raised by the Earl of Egremont in Sussex, England. It was granted the Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society in 1993, and it is currently the third most cultivated apple in England and Wales.
