Sweet Tart

Braeburn is a slightly conical, crimson red apple overlaid on thin, yellow skin. Its yellow flesh is dense, aromatic, and juicy, and it has sweet-tart flavor with a hint of citrus.

Braeburn is good for both fresh eating and cooking, and it has three to four times as much Vitamin C as the average apple. It keeps well in storage.
