Roxbury Russet

Roxbury Russet: This apple is the oldest American apple, originating early in the 1600’s in Massachusetts. It was one of the most widely grown russets in the South. It makes truly exceptional cider and cooks well. The tree is a healthy grower, usually bearing large crops most years, and exhibiting resistance to many apple diseases.  Fruit is medium or larger and green to yellow in color with a brown russet. Flesh is yellow, coarse, and firm with a subacid  flavor. Ripens in September and October and a good keeper.
