The flesh is crispy, creamy, and juicy flesh that is deliciously tart. The Granny Smith apple tree was introduced in the 1860’s by Thomas and Maria Smith in Sydney, Australia.  Tree vigorously grows upright and ripens in the Fall.

 

The Granny Smith apple is a large and tart fruit. The skin is light green and shiny with a sharp flavor. Known to make people pucker, it is no wonder that the Granny Smith apple is the most used when it comes to making salty sweet caramel apples. Boasting as the all-purpose apple, the Granny smith is also ideal for pies, jams, and ciders. Kept fresh fruit will last nearly 6 months!
Granny Smith apple trees thrive in hot climates and require long summers for optimal fruit set. With such a long bloom period, not only will you be able to enjoy the impressive blossoms for longer, but you will have a great pollinator for other varieties. Botanically the Granny Smith apple tree is a bit different than others. Instead of fruiting on long-lived spurs, the fruit bears at the tips giving a slight droopiness to branches.
