Braeburn is one of the most important commercial apple varieties, grown in all the major warm-climate apple producing areas of the world. It has a very good flavor when grown in the right conditions, and keeps well.
Sorry we have not been able to produce any trees of this variety this season.
We may still be able to propagate it to order for you. Please contact us for more details.
Braeburn is in flowering group 4. Braeburn is self-fertile and does not need a pollination partner, although fruiting may be improved if there is a compatible tree of a different variety nearby.
Braeburn is generally an easy variety to grow, but it needs a long growing season. It does well in most areas where there is plenty of autumn sunshine. Although essentially a warm climate variety, it does not like excessive mid-summer heat.
Being a commercial variety, it is well-suited to the more dwarfing rootstocks such as M9 and B9.
Braeburn and most of its sports are self-fertile and do not necessarily need a pollination partner.
Discovered in New Zealand in the 1950s, possibly a seedling of Lady Hamilton. Braeburn is popularly thought to be related to Granny Smith, but the relationship - if any - has never been proven.
