Braeburn-Red Braeburn Apple
Malus domestica 'Braeburn'
- Hardiness Zone & More
Braeburn is one of the most popular apples in the produce section. It is a large, conical, very dense fleshed red apple with a nice sweet, but tart flavor. Remeniscent of Jonathan in some ways. Very crisp and juicy. It is one of the latest picking apples in the fall. Wait as long as possible for the best quality--- wait for its background color to change from green to yellow.
Braeburn was found as a seedling in New Zealand around 1952 and has become world famous. When introduced in the US in the 1980's, Grandpa was really impressed and planted it as soon as he could get his hands on some.
