Probably the best known of all the russet apples. Sweet, crisp and firm with a nutty flavour which is quite distinctive. Egremont Russet tolerates colder more damp parts of the country, yet still produces a good quantity of fruit. Stores well until Christmas.
Tree was adopted and planted by Jane Bassett on 4th March 2017 in St Ives Community Orchard.
