Royal Russet apple

/NAW-fuk ROYL RUH-sit/

A russeted 'sport' of Norfolk Royal, this is a good-looking yellow eating apple streaked and flushed blushed with red and russet found by Reverend CE Wright in his garden at Burnham Overy Staithe in North Norfolk. It was subsequently introduced in Gloucester at Highfields Nursery in 1983 and received the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit. This mid-season variety is harvested from early September in South-East England and is now grown for several farm shops in Norfolk. A nutty tasting russet, it is at its best from September or October to December or January.
