Organic Egremont Russet Apple Trees produce apples with the distinctive russet 'fine sandpaper' texture and dry golden skin, not to mention the sought after crisp, sweet and nutty flavour - Egremont Russet is deservedly the most popular russet apple variety.
Our Organic Egremont Russet Apple Trees are supplied on both moderately vigorous and semi-dwarfing rootstocks and will arrive with you in maiden form, ideal for training as cordons and espaliers or for initial pruning as bush type trees. Relatively trouble free to grow, Organic Egremont Russet Apple Trees are good pollinators and can be picked from late September, storing well into December for that winter russet texture and taste experience - and although russet varieties have fallen behind crispier tasting, smoother skinned apple types in the last few years, this old Victorian favourite is going some way to re-dressing the balance.
Organic Egremont Russet Apple Trees are despatched in bare-root form between November and March.

Planting and Delivery Information
See our Guide to Successful Fruit Trees for more growing advice.
Planting - do not attempt to plant your fruit trees when the ground is frozen or waterlogged. The trees can be stored in their packaging in an outbuilding or garage for 2-3 days, or can be heeled into the soil where the ground is not as frozen. Alternatively, plant up in large pots or containers and ensure the roots have good contact with the soil.
