Fall Russet

2
Found in a family orchard in Franklin, Michigan, the true identity remains unclear but it is thought Fall Russet may be the old apple Autumn Pomme Gris described in Downing’s 1859 masterpiece, “Fruits and Fruit Trees of America”. As described by Burford, “a small, yellowish-green or golden russet apple, often irregularly webbed with gray and dark green and an orange flush, the creamy yellow flesh is crisp with a rich, sweet and subacid flavor”. Ripens in September.

    Hello:
    My wife and I plan to travel to Michigan looking to buy Fall Russet apples. Will you have some for sale next week during the week?

    Thank you

    My apologies. I see your farm is located in North Carolina. We won’t be traveling east this year, but we do travel east to visit my daughter and will look forward to stopping at your farm.
