Mother Nature gifted the world with Braeburn apples in a chance seedling in O. Moran’s orchard in New Zealand back in 1952. Chance seedlings rarely result in commercially-viable fruits, but Braeburn was an exception to the rule. Braeburn’s have a reddish hue with yellow to light green undertones, a creamy to golden-colored interior along with a robust, sweet-tart flavor with a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon.
