Tart, with full luscious flavor. Braeburn is one of the last apples of the season to be picked, right after Fuji. The tart flavor makes your mouth tingle followed by its sugar that makes your mouth smile. A very good keeping apple that develops more sweetness as it is stored. To us, it is often better in late November than it is right off the tree. A great Christmas apple that is wonderful fresh or in pies and sauces. This is another favorite apple of our local distillery and makes a nice vodka and gin. Look for Braeburns in mid-to-late October.
