[NAFEX] Golden Russet nursery origins

Wed Oct 14 10:28:39 EDT 2009

I used to have Roxbury Russet but it was very unsuccessful in our SW Iowa Z5
climate, so I took it out.  Golden Russet and Ashmead's Kernal both are late
apples for us usually ripening in October.  We have had a cool wet summer
and our fall is 20 degrees cooler than normal so both russets are not
ripening well.  My Early Golden persimmon is not going to have very many
ripe fruits.  But my Empire apples have colored to a purple beauty and our
keeping better than in a hot fall.  Judson L. Frisk

I haven't seen anyone mention Roxbury Russet, which is sometimes confused
with Golden Russet. RR is larger, more acid, and with a green undercoat. GR
is more golden and so sweet it has sticky juice.

I was just wondering which nurseries the GOOD Golden russets came from
compared to the O.K. Golden Russets.  I thought GR was a late Oct.
