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.
Brabant Bellefleur is an attractive apple, usually green with a red flush. The flavour is sweet with some balancing acidity.
It ripens in mid-October, and has excellent keeping qualities.
The identification paintings in the USDA Pomological Watercolor Collection span the years 1886 to 1942.
