Granny Smith Apple


Granny Smith Apple

Malus spp. Fall. Unknown parentage, possibly a seedling of French Crab. New South Wales, Australia, 1860s. Named for its discoverer Maria Ann Smith.

Perhaps the most widely known and recognizable of all apples, available in almost every supermarket on the planet! Iconic medium-sized grass-green fruit with bright shiny skin, often with fine russet netting and purplish dots. Known in our area as Blushing Granny in colder climates it develops a beautiful contrasting pink blush with the cold nights. Thick-skinned extremely durable storage apple. We’ve seen bins of perfect Grannies in the depths of February at the Apple Farm in Fairfield, ME. Oft considered a tart acidic apple, but it sweetens in storage. Great for midwinter snacks and famous for apple pies.

Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
