A while back, someone sent me scionwood labeled Sargent Russet.
I did not even bother to look it up as I know there are many russeted apples. This year, the graft produced a few nice looking russeted apples. The taste was nice but mild.
At first I could not figure out which branch the apple fell from. Yesterday, I was able to track it to the graft with a tag that said “Sargent Russet”.
So, I looked it up. There is no such a thing as a Sargent or even Sargeant Russet apple.
Michigan State Univ makes note of it as a cider production apple with the same accession # and they note an average brix of 15.6 and late harvest date. They also list it as “Sergeant Russet Golden Delicious”.
