Braeburn apples have a remarkable balance of sweet and tart flavour, and a crisp crunchy bite, making them a very popular snacking, baking and juicing apple. The Braeburn apple has a look of its own, with red and orange streaks, with a yellow and green background. It turns a bold red when left to ripen.  Due to its firm texture, the Braeburn apple holds up well when baked so is ideal for apple pie, tarts, and muffins. Its flavour profile also lends well to making applesauce, drying slices or adding to fruit salad. Did you know this apple variety originated in New Zealand in the 1950s?
