Top fruit tree growing advice and information from Real English Fruit




There are various types of Braeburn. The tree originates from New Zealand. It is a healthy tree and has good storage characteristics. It flowers every year and fruitset is not normally a problem. What can be a problem is the flavour. In cold summers, a good flavour does not always develop. This is caused by the fact that this variety does best in warm summers with plenty of sunshine. Therefore it is best to harvest the apples late in the season; end of October/early November. The fruit will stay crisp for a long time, and fruit losses due to rotting are usually very low.
