A rare and almost forgotten apple out of Manitoba, the Morden Russet is a greenish-yellow coloured apple that is russeted. Fruit has firm, drier amber yellow flesh that is very flavourful. Good to eat fresh and excellent to use in cider.
Morden Russet Apples average 6 to 7 cm (2 1/2") in diameter. They ripen later in September and keep well for several months in cold storage. Originally released by Morden Research Station in 1935.
