Apples are a good source of several important nutrients and are great for overall health. They contain about 4 grams of dietary fiber each, which promotes digestive health and lowers blood sugar levels. The potassium, Vitamin C, and other antioxidants in apples also contribute to the health-enhancing qualities of apples.
Norfolk Royal Russets are mostly a dessert apple, best to eat fresh out of hand. They can be enjoyed cut up into slices with cheese—russet apples pair especially well with creamy, nutty blue cheese. This variety does not keep especially well, and should be eaten within two or three weeks of purchase.
Apple sports are varieties that first grew off of a shoot on its parent apple tree. In the case of Norfolk Royal Russet, the new sport grew off of the Norfolk Royal. Sports are different in some way from the original tree—often it is the color or disease resistance. Norfolk Royal Russets have russeted skin and a better flavor than its parent. A sport is identical or very closely related genetically to the tree it grows on.
The Norfolk Royal Russet, as its name suggests, originated in Norfolk, England. Retired Royal Airforce chaplain C.E. Wright discovered it growing in his garden. It was introduced to market in 1983 by Highfields Nursery in Gloucester, England. The original, non-russet Norfolk Royal was discovered in 1908 on Wright’s Nursery in Norfolk, England. This apple is best suited for temperate climates such as England.
