The Instacart guide to Braeburn apples
About Braeburn apples
The Braeburn apple was first discovered growing in the Braeburn Orchard in New Zealand in 1952. Braeburns are known as chance seedlings. They were not intentionally cultivated but created completely by nature. They are believed to be a relative of the Lady Hamilton and Granny Smith apple as both of these varieties were growing in the Braeburn Orchard at that time. Now you can find Braeburn apples growing in New Zealand, Chile, France, Italy, England, and the United States.
Oval in shape and medium to large in size, Braeburns are a great all-purpose apple with a strong flavor. They are the perfect apple for snacking. Their bi-colored skin has a yellow base that is covered with either red or pink color. The flesh of a Braeburn apple is pale yellow or gold in color, crisp and juicy, and sweet and tart in flavor. Similar in taste to a McIntosh apple, it also has subtle hints of spice, pear, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
This lovely sweet and sour apple pairs well with soft, mellow, or creamy cheeses, such as a Camembert or gouda. When served raw, baked, or roasted, they do well and complement both sweet and savory dishes. When serving raw, you can slice and add to salads and sandwiches or serve on a cheese board or fruit platter.
Braeburn apples are one of the first modern apple varieties with a strong, yet juicy flavor. They are currently one of the top apples produced in Washington state and in New Zealand. These apples are easy to grow and easy to ship due to their resistance to bruising.
