Malus domestica Rosemary Russet - Mid Season

Description of Rosemary Russet Trees & Fruit:

Rosemary Russets are rough looking apples with a variable amount of russeting. They are juicy, with a strong flavour that is more sharp than sweet. The flesh is firm and quite crisp. The tree has an upright habit and crops very well. Its bright red flower buds and lovely peach-pink blossom stand out from most other apple trees.
Also known as Benskin's Russet.

Browse our range of apple trees or see the full variety of fruit trees.

Characteristics of Rosemary Russet Trees:

  • Eating.
  • Self Sterile.
  • Pollination Group C.
  • Spur Bearer: suitable for cordons & training on wires.
  • Diseases: Resistant to scab and canker.
  • Harvest: Early-Mid October
  • Store & ripen in a cool, dry place: Until March.

Pollination Partners for Rosemary Russet:
Rosemary Russet is self sterile and its flowers must be pollinated to make fruit.
Your trees are in pollination Group C.
This means that they will cross-pollinate with other apple trees in pollination Groups B, C and D.

See our Guide to Apple Tree Pollination for a full list of partners & more tips about pollination (it's really simple, we promise!).

Apple Tree Rootstocks:
Rosemary Russet Maidens & Standards are grown on "MM106" rootstocks. These are suitable for espaliers and free standing trees.
Our Rosemary Russet Cordons are grown on dwarfing "M9" rootstocks.
Our Rosemary Russet Bush shaped apple trees are grown on "M26" rootstocks. These are free standing trees with short trunks. Their final height is about 3 metres.

Growing Rosemary Russet Apple Trees:
Rich soil is important - dig in plenty of good manure and compost before planting.
Soil drainage must be good, although apple trees do like clay soil.
The more sun your trees get, the better your crops will be.

History & Parentage of Rosemary Russet:
An old English breed, dating back to at least 1831.
