Hi, my name is Braeburn and I’m grown in Washington State.
My birthplace was in New Zealand and I’m related to the Granny Smith apple and a sweet variety called Lady Hamilton. If you like an apple with both sweet and tart flavors, then you will love me.
I’m green with a pretty red and orange blush. I taste a bit like cinnamon, which means I’m a great apple to use when helping mom or dad bake a pie!
- Braeburn is one of the best keeping apples. Be sure to store them in your refrigerator!
- Farmer O. Moran discovered Braeburn growing by chance. He was growing Granny Smith and Lady Hamilton apples in New Zealand in 1952 when he came across a different looking and tasting apple!
- There are more than 7,500 different apple varieties grown across the world.
