Apple Egremont Russet x1
H: From October, will store until December
A true British favourite with characteristic russeted skin and an aromatic sweet and nutty flavour. As well as being an excellent dessert variety, it’s also good in salads and is wonderful when eaten with a chunk of mature cheddar! Harvest from October and keeps through to December. Partially self-fertile.
The British climate is said to be one of the best in the world for growing apples of the highest quality. We've chosen three much loved favourites which are all guaranteed to crop well.
All of our top quality fruit trees have been chosen for their flavoursome fruits as well as for their proven performance in UK gardens. Our carefully selected range is grown on dwarfing or semi-dwarfing rootstock, so trees are easy to manage and enables several varieties to be grown in a relatively small space. Add to this their versatility and attractive spring blossom, and you have a very welcome addition to the garden.
Many of our varieties will pollinate themselves perfectly satisfactorily, but the best fruit set is assured by choosing two varieties from the same species group. However, bees will be able to help by cross pollinating from neighbouring trees.
