Braeburn apple


An attractive, all-purpose, medium-large, green, eating apple with red flushing, originally from New Zealand. It is crisp, juicy and slightly tart. It was discovered on the property of O Moran in Waiwhero near Nelson and has been grown commercially since 1952. It is not generally grown in the United Kingdom and is a late-season apple in the United States and New Zealand. It stores well, at its best from January to March, and is a heavy producer. It may count Lady Hamilton among its antecedents.
