Growing Calendar for Apple Bramley - Apple Tree
Delivery: Early November to Late April
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 20 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 20 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 20 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.

As with the Apple Spartan tree, it arrived in very good condition (not dry and tired like some we had seen in garden centres) and is growing well. Time will tell, but so far the rating is definitely 'good' and looks like becoming 'excellent'.
Well formed tree with main stem and 2 good laterals. Good roots easily planted.
The tree arrived fresh cut off,apparently because was not suit to the box in which it was packed. Very damaged tree with very poor roots, hope that it could survive!
