Bramley's Seedling is a widely grown culinary apple - an apple variety used mainly for cooking purposes.
Bramley is well-known for its rich sharp acidity - it has one of the highest acid contents of any apple variety. As a result it cooks down to a stiff but light apple puree, with an excellent sharp flavour.
The copious juice makes Bramley's Seedling valuable for juicing as well, and the juice can also be used in cider production.
The apples ripen fairly late in the season, and stores well.
Bramley apples in shops are often a solid green colour, this is because they are usually picked a bit early for long-term cold storage. Our photo shows the natural colouring of Bramley's Seedling apples, which is a pale green-yellow skin flushed with red or orange where the sun catches them.
