Apple Tree - Bringewood Pippin

We're delighted to be able to offer this extremely rare apple variety, brought back from the brink by grower Tom Adams. Bringewood itself is just west of Ludlow, and Bringewood Pippin was bred by Thomas Andrew Knight of Downton Castle in Herefordshire. The Downton Estate straddles Herefordshire and Shropshire, where the last remaining ancient tree was found and identified, after much research.

Knight was a renowned horticulturalist - he was the second President of the RHS - and his kitchen garden in particular was apparently quite something to behold. Bringewood is a cross between Golden Pippin and Golden Harvey. Unsurprisingly, this produced a yellow apple too. It was listed by John Claudius Lowdon in the Gardener's Magazine in 1831. Keeps well, heavy cropper. These plants are produced completely organically.

Supplier : Tom Adams Fruit Tree Nursery

See our section on Pollination Groups to help you select your apple trees.
We supply apple trees on the most vigorous rootstocks available. They were created specifically for use in the UK and produce healthy, heavy cropping trees for our weather conditions.

MM106 produces a good garden sized apple tree, around 4 metres tall. Grown as a free standing tree it won't need staking, although initially best to use a cane to support your new plant. M25 rootstock will produce the 6m standard trees of a traditional orchard, where they would be planted between 6 and 8 metres apart.

Please refer to our size guide for details.

Like all our apple trees, we offer Bringewood bare root, so they are only available between November and April. During lifting season, there will be a delay between placing the order and dispatching due to pressure of orders, which are dealt with in date sequence, and the weather. Orders taken from June-October will be confirmed in late October/ early November after a nursery stock take, for dispatch from November. Please consult our planting and care guide on receipt of your order.

Your purchase helps us support a range of charities, which are related to the products we sell.
