Relatively small eating apples with a distinctive russet skin and an aromatic Cox-like flavour ? somewhat unusual for an apple of this type! Apple ?Herefordshire Russet? is a modern dessert variety producing good yields of fruit from well shaped trees that have a fairly vigorous habit. Crops can be harvested in October and store well into January. Apple rootstocks:M27 – Extreme dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 1.5m (5′)M9/ Pajam 9/ P9 – Dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 2.5m (8′)M26 – Dwarf reaching a mature height of 2.5-3m (8-10′)M6 – Semi dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 3m (10′)MM106 – Semi dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 4m (13′)This variety is not self-fertile.
