Braeburn Apple

The Braeburn is named after the orchard in New Zealand where it was first commercially grown. Thought to be a cross between the Granny Smith and Lady Hamilton apples the Braeburn has distinctive orange and red streaky skin and a firm crisp texture.

Ideally suited for use in tarts due to its reduced juice content and slightly more tart acidity the Braeburn is a great apple for delicate dishes. Apple tart with custard is a superb winter warmer and with the Braeburn at its peak from October to April it is ideally placed to find its home in such a recipe.
