Just unknown here - boscop is the best here for cooking. Yes, I miss our 2 large bramley apple trees we had in the UK ... Might bring one back on our next trip - but not sure it could cope with our extreme cold winter temps.
I have just heard these trees are sterile and need to be pollinated by other apple trees (at least two). Not sure if this is true.

The climate of Nottingham is quite similar to that of Switzerland (lowlands).

Re: Apple Pie and Cooking Apples

Our climate in Leicestershire was vastly different to the Jura at 950m I can assure you, although the majority of plants brought over have done very well indeed.

But I will bring back a bramley and plant it in a sheltered spot and give it a go. Crab apple and 2 other apple trees in the orchard to pollinate.

Re: Apple Pie and Cooking Apples

You may need to build a greenhouse then-

I read they do not like late Spring frost, which is likely to occur at 950m...

Re: Apple Pie and Cooking Apples

Hi -

I just add less sugar to the dish. Last week, I made a pie with apples and berries. This time of the year is the best for fruit! Pumpkin recipes are next!

I made a very acceptable crumble last night with some apples from the field next door - no idea what varieties they are, but there's about a dozen different types, many of which are quite tart and some of which are a reasonable size for chunky pieces. Threw in a little cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg, a few raisins and some ground almonds in with the topping... delish.
