Brambley Apples in the US

Hi,
I'm Irish, living in Colorado. Does anyone know where I can get Brambley apples? I've asked Wholefoods and Central Market in Austin, TX but no one seems to have heard of them! I have tried the different eating apples here but they are tasteless and I don't like spices in my apple pies! The only thing that makes them almost like Brambley apples from Ireland is the addition of a few blackberries into the pie, but the apples still don't have the same meltingly delicious consistency of the Brambley ones.
Any suggestions would be gratefully received!!!

Bramleys in USA

Try these growers. If they don't serve your area they may know someone who does

Brambley Apples in the US

I and everyone that I know use either Granny Smith or McIntosh apples or a combination of both but what is said to be the very best pie apple grown in North America is the Northern Spy which seems to be nearly as elusive as the Bramley in these parts.

i normally use McIntosh - not a big granny smith fan

shame you don't like spices in your apple pie - that's my fave bit!

bramley apples

Bramley apples are not available here in Thailand, so I use granny smiths which are plentiful.
Once I have peeled and sliced them I squeeze the juice of half a fresh lime and let them marinate for 10 minutes, I find that this gives the tartness almost the same of Bramleys.

Trouble is, they don't "fall" like Bramleys.

Bramleys are, apparently, quite difficult to grow, need cooler summers and are seasonal so perhaps that's why they aren't popular with growers in the US.

Bramley apple pie

I'm also looking for Bramley apples to make pies for my British husband. I've been searching recipes for something without all the cinnamon (he's been wingeing about American apple pies with cinnamon for years) and waxing lyrical about Bramleys as well. I live in Austin so I won't bother with Central Market or Whole Foods, as someone has suggested they know nothing of Bramleys. I'll keep looking and keep an eye on this space, also. Cheers!
