DESCRIPTION

Bramley's Seedling is a large apple, green with red streaks, firm, and coarse-textured. The yellow-white flesh has hints of light green streaks. It is a favorite among cider makers due to its juicy combination of sweet and acid. As with a few other apple varieties, the skin of Bramleys becomes naturally greasy the longer it is stored - and they keep well. Bramley's harvest period is from October through early November.

HISTORY

Bramley's Seedling grew and was discovered in Nottinghamshire, England by chance in the beginning of the 1800s. The name Bramley is derived from a later owner of the Nottinghamshire property where the first tree grew. It continues to be a favorite baking apple in England.
