    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    By growing these trees in burlap bags, the roots grow into the cloth, rather than circling around a pot. This forces these trees to put out thousands of fine hair roots. These roots bring moisture and nutrients into the plants. This means you get a tree that will become established quicker and provide you with superior and faster growth.

    These will be the easiest trees you have ever planted! Simply dig your hole, place the Drop 'N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included) then use excess dirt to fill the hole. That's it!

A Bountiful Harvest of The Tastiest Apple!

The Braeburn Apple Tree is one of the most popular varieties. You’re probably familiar with the Braeburn Apple, because it’s one of the most enjoyed commercial varieties, and it was also one of the first. With good reason, this delicious apple with a bountiful harvest is a favorite to grow and eat.

Hands down, it’s the best tasting apple. The taste of the Braeburn even beats out the popular Granny Smith. With a firm and crisp texture, and a perfect mix of sweet and tangy, you’ll love the flavor packed into these nearly round apples. Imagine how satisfying it will be to take a bite of a fresh apple from your Braeburn Apple Tree.

Eat them any way you want. The juice and taste of the Braeburn will get your creativity flowing, and you might find yourself making james, jellies, pies, cobblers, juices and ciders. That is if you can resist eating them straight from the harvest.

And what a huge harvest it will be! Braeburn Apple Trees aren’t just known for their taste. Your tree will produce a giant harvest and give you plenty of fruit to satisfy yourself, your friends and your family. Great for freezing or storing in the refrigerator, you don’t need to worry about wasting that big harvest.

Plant just one or grow several together.  Self-pollinating, you don’t have to worry about planting a whole row of Braeburn Apple Trees - unless you want to. Happy to grow as a single tree in your front yard or alongside other varieties of apple trees in your backyard, you’ll find this versatile apple tree fits in wherever you like.

The flowers are beautiful too. The apples of the Braeburn get a lot of attention, but the flowers are just as worthy. Classified as an ornamental fruit tree, you’ll be impressed by the big, white flowers with pink undertones that blossom in the Spring. Just like the apples themselves, your tree will be covered with these prolific flowers.

You won’t be alone enjoying those flowers.  Bees, butterflies and hummingbirds love the Braeburn’s blossoms, so expect to see plenty of mesmerizing activity around your flowers in the Spring!

Braeburn Apples look stunning in Autumn. Just as you’re cozying up to all the comforting sights and smells of Fall, the Braeburn Apples begin to harvest in October. The yellow-green apples with blushes of red appear all throughout the month, adding to the nostalgic, peaceful feeling that Autumn brings.

Don’t miss your chance to grow this popular variety. The Braeburn Apple Tree truly is one of the most popular varieties, so order yours today to make sure you get them before they’re sold out. 

Braeburn Apple Tree Pollination

Braeburn Apple Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Braeburn Apple Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Planting and Caring Guide

Planting Instructions: Find a place in your yard that has well-drained soil and gets direct sunlight for 6-8 hrs a day. Remove all grass and weeds from a diameter of 3-4 ft. Dig a hole twice the size of the rootball and 2 ft. deep. Place your Braeburn Apple tree in the hole, spreading its roots. Cover back with soil and water deeply to settle roots. Add a layer of mulch to retain moisture and prevent weed growth. You may also stake your tree to encourage upright growth. Place 3-4 wooden stakes, that are 1-2 ft. taller than the tree, around it. Then use garden wire or twine to loosely tie the stakes around the tree.

Watering: Depending on how much rain your area gets, you may need to water your tree every 10 days. If you get less than an inch of rain every 10 days, water the soil around the root line. Never overwater your apple tree.

Fertilization: The best way to fertilize your tree is to take a sample of soil to your local garden center and then amend the ph accordingly. It's best to fertilize in late winter or early spring. As an alternative you can buy commercial fertilizer produced for fruiting trees and follow the instructions.

Pruning: Prune your tree when it is dormant in late winter by removing all dead leaves and branches. It is best to prune the branches in such a way that the entire tree receives an equal amount of light.

Pollination: The Braeburn Apple Tree will self pollinate, though you can plant it alongside other varieties of apple trees to increase the harvest. The best varieties to plant with are Fuji, Granny Smith, Honeycrisp and Macintosh.

Disease Prevention: Always remove dead leaves, fallen apples and plant debris from the ground below the tree after harvest. During the summer, spray the tree every other week with fungicide.

Harvesting: Your tree will bear fruit in the 2nd or 3rd year, but it is possible that it may bear fruit in its 1st year. Do not use color to determine if your apples are ready to harvest. Instead, look at the color of the ground, feel the firmness of the fruit, look for apples that have dropped and see it they are easy to pluck from the tree. Braeburn typically harvest Oct 10-25, but these dates vary slightly depending on your climate and tree.
