Herefordshire Russet

An excellent new variety combining the aromatic flavour of a Cox with a golden russet skin.

Origin: Kent UK, 2003

Pollination: Herefordshire Russet is partially self-fertile and would produce some crop without a pollinator but would benefit considerably from a pollinator.  Pollination partners
