Egremont Russet is a classic English russet apple from the Victorian era. It remains popular with discerning apple lovers who appreciate its unique flavor and apearance.
Egremont Russet is a medium-sized apple. The flesh seems quite dry and gets drier with keeping - it is moist rather than juicy. Traditionally described as "nutty", the flavor is more delicate than most varieties, and quite sweet. Both the flavor and the soft flesh are reminiscent of a firm pear.
Yet Egremont Russet is surprisingly versatile, working well in savoury salads for example, and a popular partner for cheese.
