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 flavour when grown in the right conditions, and stores extremely well. It is a good choice for the home orchard, provided you are in an areay with a warm autumn climate.

Growing and Training

Braeburn is generally an easy variety to grow, bit it does best in areas with warm climates and a long growing season.

It is self-fertile and does not necessarily need a pollination partner to produce apples, and is a good pollinator for other varieties that flower at the same time.
