Herefordshire Russet is a modern variety that is the russet with a Cox-like flavour. Fruits are deep golden amber russetted.
Exceptional eating quality with a rich, aromatic flavour and a winner in ‘taste testings’ around the country.
The tree is well spurred, well shaped and moderately vigorous. The fruit set is heavy with small to medium sized fruit. A genuine resemblance to Cox but much easier to grow, far less troublesome and disease resistant.
A very hardy variety that can be grown successfully in any part of the UK.
