Rusty Coat apple

Darker than Golden Russet with drier flesh. Very good flavor, excellent for drying, sauce and eating.

    I grew up in east Tennessee, and I love Rusty Coat apples. They are crisp but tender, sweet with some tartness in perfect balance. I wish I had a tree, but I don't think it would flourish in south Florida.

    Rusty Coat apples may be purchased in season at Boyer Nurseries & Orchards, Inc. 405 Boyer Nursery Road Biglerville, PA 17307. 717-677-8558 717-677-9567 Fax: 717-677-4026. Email: Please check ahead to confirm availablility. I purchased on Nov. 6, 2014 to taste. They are good eating out of hand, seems to be a balanced flavor - between sweet and tart - maybe a bit towards the tart, unique ugly exterior

    My grandfather (now deceased) told me as a child about his father growing Rusty Coat apples in his orchard. He said they were delicious. I would love to try them or buy a tree to grow them.
