Hi,

Just got two of these apples from my university canteen here in Durham, UK. They tasted so good that I'd like to know what type they are.

I can best describe the apple as having a light, not so crunchy (but a snappy bite), sweet taste and the flesh turns brown very quickly in air.

Just had another two, but they were no where near as sweet as the first two. Best described as having a light juicy taste.

I believe that the apple you question about is a Braeburn, although it is very difficult to ascertain from your images as their colour can often vary. They are grown in New Zealand and have a unique but delightful taste. All I will say is relish them whilst you can as they are very hard to come buy in the summer months. Enjoy your apples, noble apple enthusiast.

Store Braeburn apples here are not rarely good. That is one of the main reasons I started my home orchard.

I just asked the dinner lady and found it was a Braeburn, so you guys were spot on. Indeed I will be relishing on these for years to come.
