Russet apples are a lovely brown shade. A small to medium-sized deciduous tree with showy flowers in spring often with good autumn foliage. The tree is very hardy with a vigorous growth and can be grown in colder, higher rainfall and even windy areas of Britain.
It produces good regular crops of apples flushed brownish-red and russet covered. Creamy yellow flesh, sweet and firm with a distinctive nutty flavour from October to December. Although self fertile it will produce more fruit if it has a chance to cross-pollinate.
They keep well over the winter in a cool dry place.
Common Name: Egremont russet apple trees
Latin Name: Malus Domestica
Soil: Well drained

Symbolism Apple, domestica
The apple has very similar associations with the quince. From Adam and Eve to the present day the apple has long been a symbol of love and romance, together with peace and happiness. In some legends, apples were the food of the gods and in the Celtic tradition apples were said to grow in Paradise.
The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.
