This is a much loved and best flavoured American russet. Thought to be a seedling of an English russet. Can be used for eating, cooking and cider making. Was grown commercially in the US, but fell out of favour. But is making a resurgance due to it making an excellent flavoured cider.
Sometimes confused with 'American' Golden Russet.
An excellent cooking apple, that is tangy and fragrant. A very productive tree, that can hang onto the tree during winter.
