Braeburn Apple Trees

Braeburn apple trees produce a mid to late season eating apple. They need a sunny site and are only recommended for growing in the South of England and Wales.

Browse our full range of apple trees or see the full variety of fruit trees.

Characteristics of Braeburn Trees:

  • Use: Eating. An invigorating, sweet & sharp flavour with a lovely crisp, juicy bite.
  • Spur Bearer: suitable for cordons & espaliers, trained on wires.
  • Tree's growth habit: Average vigour. Spreading form.
  • Harvest: Late October
  • Store & ripen in a cool, dry place: Until March

General description of Braeburn:

A well known variety with lovely bright red and yellow colouring, a superbly crisp, juicy crunch and an excellent sweet and sharp balance of powerful, fruity flavour.

Despite being a low maintenance, heavy cropping tree, Braeburns are not widely grown in Britain. They are common in supermarkets; they travel well and are at their best after a period of ripening off the tree, making them ideal for large scale imports. They also need plenty of warmth and sun, which makes them unpopular with British commercial growers in most parts of the country. That said, they have increased in popularity in Kentish orchards, where they perform well.
To avoid a disappointing flavour, we really recommend this tree for sheltered sites with full sun in Southern areas.

Rootstocks:
All of our Braeburn trees are grown on MM106 rootstocks, except for the cordons, which are grown on M9 rootstocks.

Pollination Partners for Braeburn:
Your trees are reliably self fertile, but will make the best crops when pollinated.
Braeburn is in pollination Group E.
This means that they will cross-pollinate with other apple trees in pollination Groups D, E and F.

See our Guide to Apple Tree Pollination for a full list of partners & more tips about pollination.

Braeburn Disease notes:
Disease susceptibility: Scab, Mildew, Fireblight, Bitter Pit.

History & Parentage:
A New Zealand breed that was raised in Braeburn Orchards, located in the centre of the country. It was discovered in 1952 as a chance seedling, most likely between Lady Hamilton and Granny Smith. It now accounts for nearly half the apples that are exported from New Zealand and it is also very popular in the USA.

How Apple Trees are Measured & Delivered:
Our fruit trees are delivered in up to 3 shapes and you can also buy selected apple trees as ready made cordons.
Maiden: This unbranched tree is the smallest starting size. You can train maidens into espaliers and cordons.
Cordon: Braeburn trees are spur-bearers, so they can be made into cordons and espaliers.
Bush: This is a style of freestanding tree with a short trunk of about 60cms. It will grow to about 3 metres tall.
Half-Standard: This is a freestanding style that will grow into a full sized, "normal" apple tree, about 4 metres tall.
