Bramley apple substitute?

Hi - I live in Germany and can't get Bramley apples. What would be a proper substitute? I'm making a "bramley apple jelly" ...

Thanks!

You need a hard cooking apple - I think the nearest German equivalent is  "Gloria Mundi"

I hope I can find a "gloria mundi" (so far haven't seen them in the store but i haven't been paying that much attention); if not, there is something called a "boskop" apple that seems like a hard cooking apple, as you explained.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Mia,

Take a look at the site of the belgian fruit auction society. I think that all brands are exported to Germany.
Just scroll to " apples".
Boskoop is indeed a great cooking apple.

Good luck.

Great, thanks for your reply Sabs! That site is very helpful. I recognize many of the apple types -- boskoop is readily available here thankfully.

all the best,
Mia
