Roxbury Russet Apple Tree


The Roxbury Russet apple tree is one of the oldest American heirloom trees. With a  unique sweet flavor, this apple variety is great for making dessert, pies, juice and cider. Has good disease resistance, keeps well for up to five months and bears heavy crops.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Most of our fruit trees (apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, quince, and cherry) are grafted/budded and are 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. The other trees are seedlings, such as pawpaw, mulberry, persimmon, shade, berry, and flowering trees which range from 18-36" tall.

A rootstock primarily controls a tree's size and how early it bears fruit. Learn more about our specific rootstocks.
