General description of Browns Apple:

Browns Apple trees are a vigorous Devonshire cider apple breed that also make nice cooking apples. They have become quite popular in new orchards: the trees are a bit slow to begin producing fruit, but once they start they will make big crops.
A medium sized fruit that falls when ripe, Browns Apples have firm flesh and a sharp flavour. When used for cider making, the juice is classed as a full "sharp". It is vintage quality, which means that you can make a respectable cider using just these apples.
They also make decent cooking apples. The fresh juice is refreshing to drink and doesn't need to blended with sweeter varieties.

All of our Browns Apple trees are grown on MM106 rootstocks.

Pollination Partners for Browns Apple:
Your trees are self sterile and their flowers must be pollinated to make fruit.
Browns Apple is in pollination Group E.
This means that they will cross-pollinate with other apple trees in pollination Groups D, E and F.

See our Guide to Apple Tree Pollination for a full list of partners & more tips about pollination.

Browns Apple Disease notes:
Disease resistance: Scab (strong).

History & Parentage:
This tree was found by Mr Hill, a nurseryman in Staverton, Devon, sometime before 1920.

How Apple Trees are Measured & Delivered:
Our fruit trees are delivered in up to 3 shapes and you can also buy selected apple trees as ready made cordons.
Maiden: This unbranched tree is the smallest starting size. You can train maidens into espaliers and cordons.
Cordon: Browns Apple trees are spur-bearers, so they can be made into cordons and espaliers.
Bush: This is a style of freestanding tree with a short trunk of about 60cms. It will grow to about 3 metres tall.
Half-Standard: This is a freestanding style that will grow into a full sized, "normal" apple tree, about 4 metres tall.
