Growing Calendar for Apple Egremont Russet - Apple Tree
Delivery: Early November to Late April
Egremont Russet is a superior, classic variety with an RHS Award of Garden Merit.
It produces russet-skinned apples with a good balance between sweetness and sharpness, it has a delicious nutty flavour.
Egremont Russet is a classic English russet apple from the Victorian era. It remains popular with discerning apple lovers who appreciate its unique flavour and appearance.
Egremont Russet is a medium-sized apple. The flesh seems quite dry and gets drier with keeping - it is moist rather than juicy. Traditionally described as "nutty", the flavour is more delicate than most varieties, and quite sweet.
Both the flavour and the soft flesh are reminiscent of a firm pear. Yet Egremont Russet is surprisingly versatile, working well in savoury salads for example, and a popular partner for cheese.
Like many russets, Egremont Russet is a good apple for juicing. The apples are not particularly juicy, so you need plenty of them, but the resulting juice is rich, thick, and very sweet.
Harvest from November they can be eaten straight away or stored for up to three months. A delicious apple to serve with cheese.
