Fruit – Vegetable – Tropical Fruits
The Braeburn was discovered 1952 as a coincidence seedling in a fruit-growing farm in New Zealand. The parent apples are probably Lady Hamilton and Cox Orange Pippin.
The apple is conical shaped, medium to large sized, cylindric and smooth with a shining, golden skin. The colour touches scarlet red to crimson.
The Braeburn tastes deliciously refreshing and aromatic with a pleasant sugar-acid balance and a compact bite. The flesh is firm and very juicy.
In the beginning of October.
It is a versatile, very tasty apple, which is outstandingly suitable for both fresh consumption or for baking and cooking. As there is a high content on vitamin C in the fruit, it slowly turns brown after being cut.
