Originating as a chance seeding in New Zealand in the 1950’s Braeburn features a yellow–gold skin colour with reddish overtones. The creamy firm flesh and robust spicy flavour makes it a good apple to eat fresh or bake with. This is an easy tree to prune because it produces large amounts of fruit spurs without special pruning techniques. Disease resistance is good. Regular and good cropper. Late season harvest and stores well.



Fresh, juice and sauce.
