Notes for Identification:

Bramley's Seedling (Malus domestica) is a spreading tree that produces large, tart apples wonderful for cooking due to it's very high acid content (higher than most traditional American cooking apples). It also makes a great juicing apple for ciders.


It is a long living variety, the first tree lives today which was grown from a pip in a garden in Nottinghamshire, England, in 1809.

Bramley's Seedling (Malus domestica) is very vigorous triploid variety meaning it is not able to pollinate other apple varieties. The fruit ripens late in the season, and stores very well.
