A classic English russet apple from the Victorian era, raised in the 1800s on Lord Egremont’s estate in Petworth Sussex. It is highly regarded for its distinctive sweet nutty flavor also described as recalling the scent of crushed ferns. After storage it becomes dry, almost smoky with a tannic quality. A surprisingly versatile fruit; working well in savoury salads, good as a companion for cheese, and yielding a rich thick sweet juice. Best picked late September/early October, this variety will keep until Christmas.
Flowering group B (Early).
MM106 rootstock gives a semi-dwarfing tree that will reach 4m in height. It will start fruiting at 3-4 years.
Tree comes as a maiden whip (1 year tree with no branches). The trees are bareroot, so the tree will arrive with bare roots (without soil) wrapped up ready for planting out or heeling in. Available only in dormant season (November-April).
