Apple Bramley’s Seedling

Apple Bramley’s Seedling

In the early 19th century, a Mary Ann Brailsford planted the pip which grew into this famous cooking apple in her Nottinghamshire garden; it was named after the man who next lived there, and who spotted the apple’s potential. Apple Bramley’s Seedling produces huge crops of very large green apples, lightly striped red; the flesh is cream-coloured, juicy and of excellent flavour, with high acidity. Very big, vigorous tree. Partial tip-bearer, so not suitable for trained forms. Tendency to biennial bearing if the fruit is not thinned. Susceptible to scab and late frosts. Triploid – needs two pollination partners if all three are to bear fruit.
