Apple Bramley's Seedling Tree

Malus Bramley's Seedling

Apple Bramley's Seedling is an overall excellent cooking variety that cannot be faulted! It cooks to a smooth puree that is fluffy and light and can also be more slowly baked for tarts and pies. These apples can produce a delicious single-fruit juice or will make a full sharp cider.

The crop is ready in mid October and can be stored right through winter. Bramley Seedling is a is a triploid apple, so it requires two different pollinating apple trees or one self fertile apple tree in the groups A, B or C.

Planting Advice

Our pot grown Apple Bramley's Seedling trees can be planted all year-round. To aid the trees growth more effectively, sprinkle root grow when planting. Here are some tips for planting your apple tree:

  1. Dig a square hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 3x as wide 
  2. Mix 50% of the original soil with 50% compost
  3. Place the roots of the tree into the hole, fill it with your soil mix and firm around gently (avoid banking the collar of the tree)

Aftercare Advice

Keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons.

  • If planting in spring or summer, water well for the first few months and increase watering if there are periods of hot or dry weather.
  • If planting in autumn, you may only need to water a little.  

If your area is prone to rabbits, use a rabbit guard.

Pruning Advice

It is important to prune your apple tree for the first few years to ensure a healthy, goblet-like shape.

  • Remove the lowest laterals
  • Pune back other branches by a third of their length (formative pruning)
  • Remove any shoots growing out of the trunk to maintain a clear stem 
  • Rmove crossing, diseased or damaged branches
  • Remove some of the larger branches to open up the canopy. 

Formative pruning should take place in early spring.

General pruning should take place between November and March.
