Yummy Granny’s have stood the test of time. A versatile apple, great for both cooking & eating fresh. Look for bright green coloured skin.
A relatively long season, Granny Smith apples store well when refrigerated due to their dense flesh.
Discovered in 1862 by Maria Ann “Granny” Smith (she had lots of grandchildren!) in Eastwood, NSW, Australia. As the story goes, Granny Maria loved to cook with crab apples, and would throw the cores out her kitchen window. One day she noticed a seedling had sprung up outside, and eventually it began to produce bright green apples, fantastic for cooking!
A fresh, tart flavour, and full of juice! The acidity mellows as they ripen (skin becomes more yellow).
