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.
Estimated time to best yields: 5 years.

Apple 'Spartan'

Malus domestica

A juicy, refreshingly sweet apple that is instantly recognisable by its deep maroon colour. Apple ‘Spartan’ is also an excellent pollinator for other apple trees and so is extremely useful in any collection. Later to ripen than some varieties, the fruit will happily sit on the tree for two weeks or more before needing to be harvested, meaning you can spread out your picking and not end up with too many at once. Height: 4m (157"). Spread: 3m (118"). Rootstock: MM106 More info

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. Rootstock: Quince A. Height and spread: 4m (13').


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
