Malus domestica Braeburn is a deciduous apple tree. It was originally bred in New Zealand in the 1950s. It grows well in gardens in the UK, producing heavy fruit crops.
In Spring, pale green leaves fill the branches quickly followed by a pink blossom carrying five petals each. The pink buds open into paler star shapes with golden stamens. The pink petals ripen into tiny firm apples that gradually swell over the Summer. In late October to November, when the apples appear an equal amount of green and red, they are ready to harvest.
Apples should be pruned every year to get the best crop.
The Royal Horticultural Society has given Apple Braeburn the ‘Perfect for Pollinators’ badge due to the large volume of pollinating insects it attracts because of its fragrant blossom.
