Apple 'Braeburn' - 7 Gal.


Malus 'Braeburn'

(Semi-dwarf) This chance seedling found in New Zealand in the 1950s hit American shores in the 1980s and became a fruit stand classic for its great taste, crispness and long keeping ability. Unfortunately, it has not been readily available to the home fruit landscaper. Thats too bad because it is a great Apple to grow but with a couple of quirks. While it is a mid-season bloomer that can be pollinated by many other Apple selections,Braeburn is one of the latest Apples to mature with the fruit taking into early to mid-fall to fully ripen. Braeburn also will flower like crazy as a youth but it will keep you waiting a couple seasons longer than most Apples to bear considerable fruit. These two quirks aside, you will findBraeburn to be the Apple of your eye featuring outstanding taste whether fresh or cooked, crisp, tart flesh, great storage ability and a multi-use nature that will keep your fruit hungry family begging for more!
