- Fruit is medium to large, red striped with an orange red blush on a yellow background. The flesh is pale, cream colored, crisp and juicy with a pleasant sub acid tart flavor. The Braeburn apple's sweet-tart flavor can be enjoyed fresh, but the high acidity also makes it a choice baking apple. .Fruits store for four months. A bit richer flavored and firmer than Fuji, but not quite as good a keeper.
