Apple 'Bramley's Seedling'

Malus domestica

The most famous cooking apple of all, producing large fruits with a sharp acidic flavour that are ideal for making delicious pies and crumbles. Awarded an RHS AGM, Apple 'Bramley's Seedling' has good disease resistance to scab and mildew. Pick 'Bramley' apples from October when mature for immediate use or lay the fruits in a cool dry place for winter storage. They will store for up to 3 months.


Grafted onto a dwarfing rootstock, the crowns of 'Bramley' apple trees are easily reached to prune, spray and pick your delicious fruit. All 'Bramley's Seedling' apple trees are 'triploids' and will set a partial crop by themselves. However, for the heaviest crops they are best grown with another apple. If you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as suitable pollinator.
Root wrap tree - Height and spread: 2.5m (8') Rootstock: M9.
Patio tree - Height and spread: 1m (3') Rootstock: M27.


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.

Pear 'Conference'

Pyrus communis

The best known of all pears, 'Conference' is excellent eaten as a dessert pear but also exceptional when cooked. The long bell shaped fruits with firm flesh can be eaten hard or fully ripe with a smooth juicy flavour. Trees crop late in the season from October to November, and the fruit will store until January. Enjoy 'Conference' pears at their best by picking them slightly under-ripe, store them in a cool place and bring indoors to ripen slowly.

These strong growing pear trees are partially self-fertile but make the ideal planting partner for another variety such as 'Williams Bon Chretien' to aid pollination and increase the yield. If you only have room for one pear tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as a suitable pollinator. Rootstock: Quince A. Height and spread: 4m (13').


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 5 years.
