Apple Tree 'Herefordshire Russet'* (Late)
This thin skinned russet apple was bred in the U.K. and has consistently been a favourite at our annual Apple Tasting Weekends. The quality is exceptional with a rich aromatic flavour. It is probably best described as the russet with a Cox flavour. Herefordshire Russet has been through commercial trials and has been chosen by one supermarket as an exclusive. The tree is heavy cropping and some thinning may be necessary to maintain fruit size in later years.
Apple trees are grafted on a M26 rootstock and will reach an eventual height of 2.5-3.5m (8-12ft). Trees should be planted 3-4.5m (10-15ft) apart.
Apple trees are available for delivery from late November until late March.
Please remember that fruit trees do require staking for the first few years of their life, we also strongly recommend the use of rootgrow™ when planting to encourage strong root growth and aid establishment.
