Brabant Bellefleur

(Belle Fleur Simple, Glory of Flanders)
Brabant Bellefleur is listed in the RHS Plants for Pollinators

Brabant Bellefleur was recognised by the English pomologist Robert Hogg, writing in 1884, as "an excellent culinary apple of the finest quality". It is an attractive apple, usually green with a red flush. The flavour is sweet with some balancing acidity. The apples ripen in mid-October, and have excellent keeping qualities.

Brabant Bellefleur is a very old apple variety, originating from the area of Brabant in the south of the Netherlands, but also found across Belgium and northern France. Like many old apples it goes by numerous other names, including Belle-Fleur Simple.
