Saint Edmund's Russet is a good garden apple variety, it crops reliably and grows in a wide range of conditions. Like many russet varieties, it has some natural resistance to many of the main apple diseases. It is a good choice for growers in areas of high rainfall.
The only thing to look out for is that it can be a partial tip-bearer - some apples are borne on the ends of shoots rather than the more usual short fruit-bearing spurs. For this reason it is best to keep pruning to a minimum, to avoid accidentally pruning the fruit-bearing tips of shoots.
