Nant Gwrtheyrn/Golden Russet
At an apple tasting at the National Trust’s Llanerchaeron Orchard Week the Nant Gwrtheyrn was rated as one of the best eating apples. The fruit is crisp and juicy with a distinct fennel note.
We regard this as the ideal partner to the Bardsey Island apple. It is a later season apple that keeps well, extending the season.
The Nant Gwrtheyrn is pollination group B.
The original tree was found growing in the garden of what was, at one time, the quarry manager’s house.
It was possibly a chance seedling from a discarded apple. Perhaps one in a hundred such seedlings ever produce a good apple.

In this case the resulting apple was excellent! If you like russet style apples, then the Nant Gwrtheyrn is a must. Click here to buy a tree!
