Braeburn apples were first discovered in 1952 growing in the Braeburn orchard in New Zealand. This variety was a chance seedling, meaning it was not intentionally bred but was created by nature. It has since become a top commercial apple variety and is popular all over the world.
Braeburn’s are known for being bi-colored and having yellow skin covered with pinkish red striping. The severity of the striping will vary based on the climate that the fruit has grown.
The Braeburn variety is very crisp and juicy, containing hints of spice, nutmeg and cinnamon. It works well as both a snacking and cooking apple.
We recommend storing your apples in the fridge in a plastic bag, should keep for a few weeks!
