Braeburn was one of the first "bi-coloured" varieties, a characteristic now regarded as essential for sales success.
Braeburn apples have a unique combination of sweet and tart flavour.
Origin: The first Braeburn tree was discovered growing in New Zealand in the 1950s, and is named after Braeburn Orchards, where it was first grown commercially.
It is thought to be a cross between Granny Smith and Lady Hamilton.
They are available October through April and are medium to large in size.
