description for "Apples: Malus domestica 'Braeburn'"

Semi-dwarf 'Braeburn' is an apple tree you will love. 'Braeburn' has both the tang of 'Granny Smith' and the sweet juiciness of 'Red Delicious'. Smooth and crisp yet tender flesh, this apple holds for months under refrigeration. 'Braeburn' has been hybridized on super-dwarfing rootstock so trees grow just 8 to 10 feet tall yet produce an abundance of fruit. Trees are so vigorous and productive, we recommend thinning to avoid over-cropping. Can be grown successfully in a tub or it works beautifully as an espalier. In the orchard, plant trees 15-20 feet apart and provide another apple variety for pollination, such as 'Stark Royal Gala' or 'Red Fuji.' Harvest late October in Zone 5. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
