Braeburn Apple Tree - Malus domestica "Brarburn" :

The Braeburn Apple has a sweet flavor balanced with a moderate tartness that produces a unique blend. The texture is crisp and firm and juicy. The under color is yellowish green and is shaded by a broadly red-striped color pattern.

The Braeburn was a chance seedling discovered in New Zealand. Braeburn apples are an old-fashioned sweet apple with a smooth and crisp texture. It's great for snacks and salads. It is a late season apple with a long storage life (up to 8 months). Its eating qualities make it adaptable for cooking as well as fresh use.

The Braeburn apple's sweet-tart flavor and crisp juicy flesh has contributed to its winning the Northwest Fruit Tasting for the last 4 years.

The commercial planted acreages are still small thus the market demand is increasing due to the Braeburn apple's excellent flavor and long storage life.

The Braeburn apple is an excellent choice for your home orchard.

Apple Lore

1945 A.D. - An apple breeding program is initiated jointly at Purdue and the University of Illinois using F2-26829-2-2 the largest and highest quality apple known at the time to have resistance to the big three diseases of apples, fireblight, scab and powdery mildew. It came from a brilliant, out of the box, cross made by Dr. C. S. Crandall at the Univ. of Ill. earlier in the 1900s who crossed Rome with Malus floribunda 821, a pea sized crab apple that was highly resistant to all the major diseases of apple.
