My Experience

Feeling spicy? Braeburn apples have obvious notes of nutmeg and cinnamon and basically taste like fall. This one is tarter than it is sweet and perfectly crisp.

Braeburn is one of the best keeping apples. They won’t release too much juice under heat, so we love this apple for baking pies and tarts.

My Story

This variety from the land down under was discovered in New Zealand in 1952 by chance. The parentage of the Braeburn is only half defined and is a cross between Lady Hamilton and another unknown variety. Many speculate it is Granny Smith as it was growing nearby at the time.

Named after Braeburn Orchard where it was first commercially grown, the apple made its way up to Washington State in the 1980s when Williams Brother nursery cultivated the variety. Braeburn is a well-known variety today and a favorite of tart apple fans!
