Braeburn is generally an easy variety to grow, but it needs a long growing season. It does well in most areas where there is plenty of autumn sunshine. Although essentially a warm climate variety, it does not like excessive mid-summer heat.
Being a commercial variety, it is well-suited to the more dwarfing rootstocks such as M9 and B9.
Braeburn and most of its sports are self-fertile and do not necessarily need a pollination partner.
Discovered in New Zealand in the 1950s, possibly a seedling of Lady Hamilton. Braeburn is popularly thought to be related to Granny Smith, but the relationship - if any - has never been proven.
