Braeburn is in flowering group 4. Braeburn is self-fertile and does not need a pollination partner, although fruiting may be improved if there is a compatible tree of a different variety nearby.
Braeburn is generally an easy variety to grow, but it needs a long growing season. It is successful in the southern UK and does very well in France and Italy. The tree will grow quite happily further north, but the apples may not ripen in a shorter growing season.
Being a commercial variety, it is well-suited to the more dwarfing rootstocks such as M9. 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.
