Quick Overview

The most popular of all English cooking apples with an acidic yet fragrant apple flavour. The UK is the only country which grows apples specially designed for cooking – Bramley gives a moist, airy 'melt in the mouth' texture.

cooking

Bramley is the best apple for cooking and accounts for 95% of all cooking apples sold - it cooks to a fluffy consistency. Wash before cooking if not peeling.

storage

Delivered from our farm, so wash before cooking. 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 plan to keep the apples for longer, individually wrap each apple in newspaper and store in a cool, dark and dry place.

varieties/season

Paul Ward grows our Bramley apples at Mole End farm in Kent. They are normally available between October and January. We select varieties that are ideal for cooking so you can make the best apple pie or crumble.

did you know?

The original Bramley was grown from seed by a young Mary Ann Brailsford in Southwell, Nottinghamshire between 1809 and 1815, and to this day still grows voraciously. Bramleys are widespread and dominate the UK market more than any other cooking apple.

Country of origin

Grown in the United Kingdom.

class

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).
