Granny Smith Apple

Malus x domestica 'Granny Smith'

Granny Smith, considerd by many to be one of the best cooking Apples, has medium-sized fruit with a dark to pale green skin with distinctive whitish dots. Crisp, tart and juicy with a good balance of acids and sugars, it ripens in late September or October. As this cultivar requires fewer winter chill hours and a longer growing season to mature the fruit, it is favored in the milder areas of Apple growing regions.
