Braeburn apples are related to Lady Hamilton apples. They have a streaky red and yellow appearance.
These apples are best around mid-October. When picking apples from a tree pick the ones on the outside first. Look for a firm fruit with few blemishes. Make sure there is no decay around the apple. Place them in the fridge if you would like to store them longer.
Braeburns have a tart flavor that will mellow out once cooked. They can be roasted with vegetables or sauteed and served on pork. These apples also make great preserves or sauces. Finally, they are great in salads.
