Bramley Apples are the essential British cooking apple brilliant for everything form pies to apple sauce!

It might be a couple of years or so before you can start enjoying the authentic taste and texture of the best cooking apple money can buy, but we know it will be well worth the wait.

Bramley's Seedling is the definitive English "cooker". However it is an extremely vigorous variety, producing a tree that is substantially larger than all other apple varieties (only Blenheim Orange comes close).

Bramley is a sport of Bramley's Seedling which happens to produce a tree which is naturally about 20% smaller, making it more suitable for the garden.

Bramley is a valuable alternative to the regular Bramley's Seedling at both ends of the size scale. You can use it on dwarfing rootstocks, allowing you to grow Bramley apples in a small space.

You can also use it on semi-vigorous rootstocks to produce a free-standing tree which is still not too large. Another advantage is that if you are planting several apple trees together, you probably want them to be about the same mature size on any given rootstock.

A regular Bramley's Seedling will become much larger than the others whereas Bramley will have similar proportions to the other trees. Although the tree is smaller, the apples are the same size as the regular Bramley's Seedling.

Our 9 litres trees are grown, protected and delivered in 'floppy pots' & polybags. The 'floppy pot' can easily be cut down the side with the tree then sliding out neatly into the prepared planting hole. The 'floppy pots' are also recyclable so you can help the environment once the tree has been planted.

In order to ensure a good pollination pick fruit trees from within the same or from adjacent flowering groups.

The vast majority of the trees we ship have been pruned and will appear trimmed.
