My Golden Russet was cut off at the base of the graft (where the roots start) during a storm last Sunday. Since it was prone to cedar rust, I am wondering if there are any suggestions for antique varieties that are immune to less affect by cedar rust. I also prefer my apples tart and hard.

What are your ideas about Newton Pippin (NP)? I have heard a lot about NP however does anyone have any growing advice?

Thanks in advance - Mike

I'd give you advice if I could, but my Newton Pippin is only a year in the ground (at least at my house) and has one apple.

For a heritage apple with some russeting you could try Ashmead's Kernel. This is a an early 18th century variety originating from Gloucestershire, England. It should do well in Pennslyvania. As an eating apple it is one of the best available. It picks in October and stores well until at least February. However, I have no idea about cedar rust resistance - it is not a problem I have encountered in England.

I think Newtown Pippin can be a bit susciptible to cedar apple rust too.

Ashmeads Kernel, mentioned by Nevil, is probably a bit resistant.

Arkansas Black, Roxbury Russet, Winesap are all fairly resistant.
