A Bramley is a green apple, sometimes with light-red striping, whose tangy, sharp flavour makes it very popular for cooking. The apples grow quite large, about 3 inches by 4 inches (7.5 to 10 cm.) Bramleys come on the market in the UK around the start of October.
Bramley Apple trees need another type of apple tree to cross-pollinate with such as Grenadier, Grimes Golden, Howgate Wonder, Spartan or Winter Banana. The trees produce pink blossoms.
Also considered a good cider apple.
Appeared as a chance seedling in Southwell, Nottinghamshire, England, in the garden of a Betty Brailsford sometime between 1809 and 1813. (Some say garden of Matthew Bramley, though there appears to be more evidence supporting Betty.) The fruit wasn't exhibited, however, until 1876. The original tree blew down at the end of the 1800s, but a branch sprang out from the tree trunk, and still flowers and produces fruit.
