The Roxbury Russet is believed to be the oldest apple cultivar bred in the United States, having first been discovered and named in the mid-17th century in the former Town of Roxbury, part of the Massachusetts Bay Colony southwest of Boston. Russetted apples are distinguished by a rough skin texture, which has caused them to fall out of favor, which is a serious shame.

They have an exceptionally tangy sweet flavor hiding underneath their rough and less than perfect exteriors. Russetted apples also have great storage life, and grow sweeter over time. They also feature great resistance to disease and pests, and therefore are highly recommended for backyard growers.
