The apple is more oval shape than round and is clearly elongated. Its skin has a yellow background with solid and consistent red stripping covering nearly all of the apple. The skin is thin and easily chewable with a crispy, juicy flesh; which is yellow. The apple is great for home orchards as it is easy to grow, produces early and vigorously, and taste best right off the tree. Uncommon to most apples- the Braeburn is self fertile and will produce some fruit on its own but homeowners will get more and better fruit with a pollinator. An excellent baking apple, it holds it shape when cooked and does not release tons of juice when heated. Stores well in consistent temperatures for 4-6 months.
