The famous russetted apple of England: Egremont Russet. There is nothing quite like it, quite unique ! From the rather discouraging exterior of brown/gray blotchy russet over a pale green/yellow background comes an apple of extraordinary flavour: nutty and a nicely balanced sweetness and tartness. The yellow flesh is crunchy rather than crisp making this quite a dense apple, but satisfying as a snack.
New storage techniques such as SmartFresh have improve the capability of growers in extending the season.
