Golden Russet
Golden Russet
Golden Russet Apple Winter. Uncertain origin. Thought to be from England, New York or New England, before 1800.

Round medium-sized russet fruit. The champagne of cider apples, ripening late in fall when the best sweet cider is ready to be made: sweet, balanced, thick and smooth. Also recommended as a sharp component for fermented cider.

Excellent eating; keeps all winter and well into spring. One of the best apples dried.

For more than 100 years, orchardists have been attempting to sort out the various russets. Several different apples have been called Golden Russet. Most resemble one another visually but differ in fruit qualities and tree habits. This is most likely the Golden Russet of Western New York.

Vigorous diverging upcurving tree with long willowy branches. Scab resistant. Blooms early to midseason. Z4-6. Both Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees; semi-dwarf: 2-5' bare-root trees)
