The Malus ‘Bramley Seeding’ is a firm favourite apple variety of mine for cooking. The Green apples will follow beautiful pink flowers, and are ready for harvesting in Autumn.
Cooking apples tolerate heavier, wetter soils than dessert varieties, and are well worth growing for winter use from store. Varieties are grafted on rootstocks which affect the size and vigour of the tree, and may be trained in a number of different shapes. ‘Bramley’s Seedling’ is a hardy vigorous tree that is triploid, meaning that it needs two other varieties for good pollination. It crops more heavily in alternate years, which is referred to as biennial.
These espaliers are 2 tiered container grown (as pictured).
