Braeburn is probably the most famous apple variety from New Zealand. A great bi-coloured apple with yellow-white, juicy flesh; a wonderful juicy, crunchy texture and a well balanced flavour with just enough ‘tang’ to match the sweetness. These are a deserved favourite in the UK, but can be variable in quality depending on where they are grown.
