Armagh Bramley Apple is the cooking apple you can trust to create an extra special taste experience.  With its protected status as one of Europe’s finest regional and traditional foods you can be certain about its authenticity, origins and superb flavour.

The Armagh Bramley Apple is the one you can count on if you are:

  • in the food, drinks, hospitality, tourism sectors
  • operating in the wholesale or retail trade
  • responsible for preparing healthy family meals
  • a tourist hungry for an unforgettable food experience with a historical significance
  • part of a diaspora craving a little slice or tipple of what you or your ancestors before you experienced.

After all, to make the perfect dish, juice or artisan cider you need the perfect apple.

Armagh Bramley Apple and Armagh Bramley Produce are world class items produced exclusively within its Protected Geographical area.  Thanks to the efforts of the Northern Ireland Fruit Growers Association and The Fruit Industry Federation the European Union has granted it Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) Status for its distinctive flavour, characteristics and long shelf life.  It is like no other cooking apple in the world.

What makes the Armagh Bramley Apple distinct from all others is the natural terrain for growing apples which can be found in the area coupled with centuries of apple growing experience and expert growing techniques which have evolved over the 3000 year relationship the area has with the apple.
