The Roxbury russet is an apple with its skin a brown color. Relatively dry and has a powdery texture. This variety of apples is a little sweet and sour, thus making it excellent for cooking. Roxbury apple has got an excellent mellow flavor once cooked. Many apples wouldn’t keep very long, but Roxbury russet can. You can dry them over the fire, store them and use them late in the winter as it keeps pretty well in a barrel.
