Hunt Russet apple

Fruit medium sized, golden russet with broken patches of smooth bright red on the cheek. It is quite attractive for a russet apple, excellent in quality and a good keeper. Known to keep in root cellars over a year.

    I should add that both sample fruits of Hunt were carmine red over most of the fruit - lots of sun here - and deep green at the apex. Tangerine and rose petal flavors, rose finish.

    I just opened a first sample from a very small tree (on P2) the other day: 18 Brix, complex and balanced flavor. Beautiful fruit; easy tree to grow. I need to graft this onto Geneva 30: can't have too many of these apples!

    This an excellent keeping apple. I've seen them keep in a box in my basement for 6 months with almost no loss of quality. I'd say that this apple would easily keep for 9 or more months in a good root cellar or a chest freezer converted into a refrigerator. Just make sure to keep the humidity high.
