The Bramley Tree
This is my little Bramley tree, lots of apples have already been picked, it's about 6 ft tall and is 15 years old [it was bought by my parents for a special birthday] It is on an M27 stock root so won't grow much bigger, which is great for a small space. The only down side is it only produces a lot of apples every few years and its one of those this year!! The only thing used is a Codling Moth Trap, no sprays so truly organic!! The freezer is nearly full of part baked apples individually bagged, and I am now doing lots of blanched/part cooked ones now for pies and crumbles. I usually put them in a freezer bag in the dish I would use, let it freeze then remove dish, so the apples can popped into the dish when I need them!
