Norfolk Royal Russet is a russeted form of Norfolk Royal - once a popular dessert apple but now quite rare. This is a sport that layers a lovely golden russet colour over the parent's bright red and pale yellow colour. Flesh is quite dry, with asweet flavour - some would say like that of a pear. Vigorous and productive, the fruit will ripen in about September and be kept until Christmas, possibly into the New Year as well. Fully hardy.
Plant Norfolk Royal Russet in full sun in moist, fertile soils. final height on MM106 will be in the region of 3 to 4 metres.
