Egremont Russet apple trees produce medium sized.... russet apples, with an distinctive nutty flavour. The tree is extremely hardy, quite vigorous and a steady and reliable cropper. Egremont Russet is a Group B pollinator and is also self-fertile. It will therefore produce some fruit if planted by itself, but will yield more in the company of a pollinating partner.
To find the cross-pollination partner of your choice for your Egremont Russet Apple, please take a look at our Guide to Fruit Pollination for more information on apple tree and fruit pollination. Delicious fresh, but Egremont Russet apples will also keep well.
Please note that our bushes, half standards and maidens are on MM106 rootstocks while our cordons are on M9 which we believe is the best rootstock for this purpose for Egremont Russet.
