About the Granny Smith :

The Granny Smith apples have been cultivated for at least 140 years. Sour apple fans will tell you that the Granny Smith should not be cooked, but eaten raw. If you crave and enjoy a juicy burst of tartness, this apple is for you. This glorious tree has handsome supermarket-size (up to 3" diameter) apples.

Plant these in the yard and you'll be pickin' sweet and hearty apples when the snow flies, because they ripen in early November! That tart flavor really lasts, and stays fresh all winter and spring. Granny Smith is your kind of apple. It is known for keeping its zesty flavor even when it is used for cooking or sautéed.

A Good Polinater for the Granny Smith is Braeburn.
