Our cooking apples are either the ever popular Bramley, with an acidic yet fragrant apple flavour, or Blenheim Orange, a mellow traditional English variety, popular since the 18th Century. Both cook down to a moist, airy 'melt in the mouth' texture.

Blenheim Orange is much less tart than standard cooking apples. In fact, we gave some to our chef Bob to try, and he had munched halfway through one quite happily before realising he was supposed to cook it. If you enjoy a controlled hint of sharpness, add a dash of lemon when you use them.


Cooking apples continue to ripen once picked and their flavour can deteriorate if not stored properly. If you plan to use the apples within a couple of days of delivery it’s best to keep them in a polythene bag in the bottom of your fridge. If you want to keep the apples for longer, individually wrap each apple in newspaper and store in a cool, dark and dry place. Delivered from our farm, so wash before cooking.


Paul Ward grows our Bramley apples at Mole End farm in Kent. The Blenheim Orange apples are from Joe Pardoe in Herefordshire. They are normally available between October and January.


Our apples are sold as class 2. This means that they might not look cosmetically perfect, but they are grown for the very best flavour. (We have to tell you this to satisfy some EU rules).
