The Egremont Russet is a classic English russet apple from the Victorian era. It remains popular with discerning apple lovers who appreciate its unique flavour and appearance.

Egremont Russet is a medium-sized apple. The flesh seems quite dry and gets drier with keeping - it is moist rather than juicy. Traditionally described as "nutty", the flavour is more delicate than most varieties and quite sweet. Both the flavour and the soft flesh are reminiscent of a firm pear. Yet Egremont Russet is surprisingly versatile, working well in savoury salads for example, and a popular partner for cheese.

Like many russets, Egremont Russet is a good apple for juicing. The apples are not particularly juicy, so you need plenty of them, but the resulting juice is rich, thick, and very sweet.

Tasting Notes.

The most well-known of the russet apples, the Egremont Russet almost defines the characteristics of this type of apple tree. Dense rather than crisp flesh with dull, rough skin, this variety has a very developed nutty flavour which many find irresistible. Dating back to 1872, it has surprising disease resistance even for a Victorian apple tree. Another unusual feature for an old variety is that it is partially self-fertile. The juice keeps that nutty flavour and a sweet aroma.
