Grafted Apples

Knobbed Russet

fresh eating

Green and yellow fruit, sometimes scarlet streaked in the sun. Uneven surface is overlaid with rough gray and black russet, welts and knobs; worthy of its name. Crisp, rich, sugary, highly flavored flesh of the highest quality. Ripens late. Originated in Sussex, England. Rescued from oblivion when the National Fruit Trials collection was put together after WWII. Introduced in 1819.
