A "heritage" classic, deep red apple with a unique sweet-tart flavor. Needs a second pollinator. The perfect combination of accent and fruit tree, Braeburn Apple produces large red round apples (which are botanically known as 'pomes') with hints of orange and white flesh which are usually ready for picking from mid to late fall. The apples have a delicious taste and a crisp texture. The apples are most often used in the following ways: fresh eating and cooking. Braeburn Apple is clothed in stunning clusters of lightly-scented white flowers with shell pink overtones along the branches in mid spring, which emerge from distinctive pink flower buds. It has forest green foliage throughout the season. The pointy leaves turn yellow in fall. The fruits are showy red apples with hints of orange, which are carried in abundance in mid fall. The fruit can be messy if allowed to drop on the lawn or walkways, and may require occasional clean-up. This is a deciduous tree with a more or less rounded form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.
