A modern russet variety, and probably one of the best-flavoured russet apples available.

Promoted with some justification as a russet with the flavour of Cox's Orange Pippin, Herefordshire Russet has a very good aromatic flavour, quite different from the nutty flavour usually associated with russet varieties.

How to grow

Herefordshire Russet is quite easy to grow, and shares many of the horticultural characteristics of its sibling Fiesta (also the offspring of Cox's Orange Pippin and Idared).
