The first Bramley’s Seedling tree grew from pips planted by Mary Ann Brailsford in her garden when she was a young girl in Southwell, Nottinghamshire, UK in 1809. These apples are very large, two or three times the weight of a typical dessert apple. Bramley’s Seedling is great for cooking, tart and juicy for snacking on and adds an important element to cider blends. It is very acidic, which gives the mildly sour, citrusy element to some fantastic ciders. You can pick out this apple from the bunch by its greenish-yellow skins with slight stripey-red patterns.
