The Braeburn Apple
Horticulture runs in our blood
Back in 1952, local farmer Mr O. Moran found an unusual looking apple growing wild on the side of the road in the Waiwhero area near Motueka. He took the apple to Cedric’s late grandfather Norman and his brother Eustace Williams who were well known in the area for their fruit growing prowess.
The brothers quickly saw the potential of the apple and took it to the then ‘Apple and Pear Board’ suggesting it should be grafted onto existing proven rootstock. Early trials were promising so the decision was made to grow the apple commercially.
70 years later the Braeburn apple continues to thrive commercially.
Driven by innovation
After 36 years experience in horticultural contracting I am getting tired. But this is a good thing, as its encouraging me every day along with our team to look for more innovative ways to operate.
