Egremont Russet Apple Tree (BARE ROOT)

Our bare root Egremont Russet eating apple tree provides apples with a nutty flavour (we checked to make sure the taster had not just eaten a peanut butter sandwich before writing the review on this apple tree). The flavour and texture could be likened to that of a firm pear and it goes surprisingly well with Cheese. As with almost every other apple tree, the fruits of the Egremont Russet taste better when allowed to ripen on the tree. As opposed to the orchards picking them early and unripe so they travel better and ripen on the shelves.

It has average resistance to most apple tree diseases (excellent resistance to apple scab) so if you are in habit of taking your tree out to visit friends and their apple trees are poorly then you have a 50/50 chance of coming back with something more than you bargained for. It is also very hardy, quite vigorous and reliable cropper and the fruit keeps quite well. The abundance of flowers also attracts the bees and other pollinating and grateful insects.

The Egremont Russet is one of several Victorian species of apple tree that have generally fallen to the wayside but a small group of apple puritans keep the demand high enough for tree nurseries to stock it. One of the reasons it may have fallen out of favour is that the Egremont Russet is not an apple that will send a burst of apple juice shooting in every direction each time you bite into it. Don't be misled into thinking that this sounds like sucking on a flip flop taken from the beach on a mid-Summers day, after all everything is relative. It is more moist than juicy and what you may lack in juice content is more than made up for with the distinctive flavour and cream coloured flesh.

The Russet part of the name refers to the texture of the skin which could be likened to a very fine abrasive paper. Not so abrasive that you will see DIY shows cutting up the fruits to plane smooth plaster walls but you know what we mean.

It is listed as being particularly suitable for the majority of UK which means you can plant it in the North, East, South and West without too many problems. This either means:

  • The Welsh won't accuse it of buying up their housing stock for holiday homes, the Scot's will not punish it for scenes shown in Braveheart and the South won't accuse it of moving into the area just to claim benefits.

OR

It can tolerate the majority of UK weather conditions except those where even penguins, permanently portable people (formerly known as Gypsies), criminals on the run, Gary Glitter and even moss won't live. 

The blossoms of the Egremont Russet are particularly heavy i.e. good pollinators for others trees.

See What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Bare Root Egremont Russett:

November 2013: I'm so sorry. I meant to reply as soon as the trees arrived. They arrived in very good condition and are now planted in the garden. We are looking forward to seeing them grow leaves in the spring. We will certainly order from you again. Regards Clare Auty  

 

Bare Root Apple Tree Jargon Explained

The options we give you when selecting an Apple tree are made up of the following terms. 

 M25Grows to a final height of around 4.5 + metres 
 MM106Grows to a final height of around 3.6 metres. 
 M9Grows to a final height of around 2.5 metres. 
 M26Grows to a final height of around 3.0 metres. 
 M27Grows to a final height of around 1.5 metres. 
 Straight Lead1m or clear trunk i.e. no branches   
 CORDONPruned to produce apples very quickly (1-3 years), favoured with commercial growers. More columnar than round shape. Less of a harvest compared to MM106. 
 BUSHClear stem of 45cm before branches grow out. 
 HALF STANDARDClear stem of 1 m. Conventional tree shape allowing easy grass mowing or companion planting. 
 MAIDEN1-2 years old, no pruning or shaping has taken place. A blank slate for you to shape and train. 
 PATIOShaped and/or with appropriate rootstock to produce compact bush proportional for pot size, ideal for container growing. 
 SELF FERTILEWill produce fruit without another apple tree nearby. 
 C1,C2,C3,C4,C5If your apple tree is NOT SELF FERTILE (they will be listed f they are) then you will need a second apple tree nearby of a similar number i.e. the same or one above or one below. So an apple tree from a C3 requires a C2, C3 or C4 planted close by for it to produce fruit. Triploids are an exception, see below. 
 Bare RootAvailable from November to March only. Comes with no pot or dirt around roots and is cheaper than potted options. Orders purchased outside this time will be held for delayed delivery until the next season starts. 
 TRIPLOIDYou have a selfish tree. It will be pollinated by other trees but the pollen it has to offer is useless. See TRIPLOID POLLINATION for more information. 

Apple Tree Ages and heights

All our apple trees have been pruned and shaped to get the best results and are inspected by an apple tree expert before being sent to you. Maiden apple trees are 1-2 years old, the rest are 2-3 years old. Heights vary depending on root stock however 1.5 to 2+ metres tall is an average apple tree height at delivery.

Bare Root Season 

All bare root plants need to be planted between November and March whereas our containerised apple trees can be planted all year round. Height can be restricted by pruning or putting the apple tree in a container to restrict growth (around 30-40 litres, smaller the pot, smaller the tree will be)

Select the root stock you desire from the list above or if you are unsure, telephone us on 0800 043 1057 or use the enquiry page.

MAKE SURE YOU SELECT THE ROOT STOCK YOU WANT AS SOME ARE CHARGED EXTRA FOR
