About this Golden Russet Apple tree
Lucknow, ONTARIO, Canada
This tree is a pain to prune (tip bearer, and not very heavily at that) for the crop. If it weren't for the fact that it's my sister's favourite apple, I'd pull out the tree.
It's healthy enough - just lots of messy, weak branches, and not that much fruit. I far prefer our roxbury russet (reliable cropper, tip bearer, better keeper, and tastes just as nice)
Winters here are long, have 3 to 6 feet of snow, and temperatures vary, with average of -8 to -15 degrees C., about 10 to 15 days will see -20 to -25 degrees C., and there is usually a damp northwesterly wind off the lakes.
