Firm and crunchy with a spicy flavour.

Tasting Notes

Originating as a chance seeding in New Zealand in the 1950’s, the Braeburn was one of the first bi–colour varieties developed with flavour to compare with older heritage varieties. It features a yellow–gold skin colour with reddish overtones, creamy firm flesh and a robust and spicy flavour. The firmness of the Braeburn also makes it a good apple to bake with. While relatively easy to grow and store, the Braeburn never took off in Ontario like Gala — mostly due to its longer growing season and as a result we only market limited quantities.
