History and description of Braeburn

Braeburn apple was discovered at Waiwhero, Upper Moutere, Nelson, New Zealand. Believed to be a Lady Hamilton seedling. First grown commercially in 1952 by William Bros at Braeburn Orchards which gave the variety its name. A very successful commercial variety grown extensively in New Zealand, USA and continental Europe.

Medium sized, round-conical fruit. Smooth green to yellow skin with scarlet flush and dark red lines. Crisp, juicy, pale cream flesh. Pleasant slightly aromatic, refreshing flavour. Sweet but with plenty of balancing acidity. Needs a good summer to fully ripen in the UK. Stores very well.

Moderately vigorous, spreading tree. A self-fertile, heavy, precocious cropper. Some biennial tendency.
