Bramley's Seedling is a large, flat, firm apple with greenish-yellow skin.  It is great for baking and cooking as well as being a good cider apple, with firm, juicy, sharly acidic flesh.  It is high in Vitamin C.  It is scab and mildew resistant, blooms late, but is a triploid, so must be pollinated by other late blooming apples.  It bears heavily, but can be biennial.  It can become greasy skinned in storage and is only a fair keeper.  Ripens in late October to November.

Bramley's Seedling came from the British Isles where is has been a traditional cooking and cider apple.  Originated in the early 1800s.
