Crop: Rosemary Russet

Another good crop of Rosemary Russet. I find it difficult to tell the fruits from Pixie, as the two cordons intertwine and the fruits are almost identical in size; the Rosemary russets are less russeted than the Pixies. The flavour is quite different however, although the season is also quite similar to Pixie. Last year it was difficult to tell which was without tasting. I think they kept marginally less well than Pixie. According to the book of apples, the stalk is thicker and shorter than that of Pixie.
