They have pale yellow skin with some coppery russetting. Sometimes there is a good deal of russetting.
Inside they have very firm, yellow flesh, with a mild but rich and spicy flavour.
The apples ripen from September to November. They can stay on the tree even after the leaves have dropped.
Not the same as Hunt Russet apples.

Bullock Apples possibly originated in Burlington County, New Jersey in the 1700s (some sources think New York State.)
One of the parents was Golden Russet.
At one time, it was one of the most popular apple varieties for cider in America.
