Braeburn Apple

Apple

Description: Braeburn is a variety which is very important for commerical growth. Its crisp, firm, aromatic fruit produces an all round excellent quality apple which stores extremley well. Prefers to be planted in a sheltered, sunny spot, grown in many different warm-climate areas in the world! Many highly coloured forms have been selected for commercial growers such as ‘Hillwell’, ‘Loch Buie’ and ‘Helena’ – they all taste the same!

History: Discovered in New Zealand in the 1950s on the property of O. Moran, Waiwhero, Upper Moultere, Nelson. Thought to be a seedling of Lady Hamilton or a relation to Granny Smith, although this has never been proven.
