Considered the 'King of Cooking Apples' by respected chefs and professional fruit growers, 'Bramley' was raised from a single seed planted by Mary Ann Brailsford in 1809. Since then it has gone on to become the world's best-known and favourite cooking apple, standing the test of time over 200 years! It is considered supreme because its fruits have the perfect acidic flavour required for use in the kitchen and the almost pure-white flesh becomes incredibly light and fluffy when cooked.
'Bramley' is an incredibly heavy cropper once established, with high-quality fruits that will store through the winter months. Pick them in early October (before they get over-ripe) and store cold but frost-free for use until January.
Our grower-quality, multi-branched, bare-root trees have been grafted onto a dwarfing rootstock to provide a compact and manageable habit, which in this case will reach about 2m (6-7 ft) tall.
It is best to grow 'Bramley' alongside another apple variety such as 'Braeburn' for best fruit set, as 'Bramley' is not self-fertile.
Supplied as a 1.2m tall, multi-branched, bare-root tree grown on a dwarfing rootstock. Will grow to approx. 2m (6-7 ft) in 10 years. Fully winter hardy.
