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: Our grafted/budded apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, and cherry trees are about 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. Most other trees are seedlings ranging from 18-36" tall. You know if a tree is a seedling when the rootstock selected says "Seedling".

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