St. Edmund’s Russet Apple


St. Edmund’s Russet Apple

Malus spp. Early Fall. First discovered in the orchard of Richard Harvey, Bury St. Edmunds, England, about 1870. Received a first-class certificate from the Royal Horticultural Society in 1875. Also called St. Edmunds, St. Edmunds Pippin and Early Golden Russet.

High-quality and highly flavored late-September dessert fruit. Medium-sized roundish-conic fruit is similar in appearance to Golden Russet but with a much lighter uniform yellowish-tan coloring. The crisp fine-textured creamy-white to yellowish juicy aromatic flesh has a sweet subacid pear-like flavor. Always one of the most popular apples at our Common Ground Fair taste tests. One of the many great apples introduced to us by the late orchardist Don Johnson. The earliest russet to ripen in central Maine every year. Not a keeper. Blooms early midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
