I used to pick apples, and the russet has an unusual flavor, and it's a late apple. I'd like to get a yellow transparent (very early) as well, and have a long apple season.

My Dad had Golden Russet apple trees, when he passed away I took cuttings but the grafts failed to take. They taste great, are pest resistant in the Detroit, MI area & are hard to find for sale here. Also on sale at a great end of season price. Thanks Stark Bro's.

Great tree
This is a beautiful tree. I believe it was only 1 year old when I purchased it and it has now been planted for 2 years in New York City. It has not fruited yet but is growing nicely with very little maintenance.
