Golden russet skin with red blush on sunny side, round, flattish, yellow flesh, very rich aromatic flavour, sweet, soft, excellent with cheese.
Ripe February, March but store well and taste better with keeping. Golden Russets were very common in all of the old orchards.
They are precocious bearers, reliable heavy croppers and are very special apples.
From the Matakana area and very probably from the original Mathew Bros nursery in the area.
