A hard apple with a crisp tart flavour perfect for baking, freezing, salads, sauces and pies.
Granny Smith is one of the best cooking apples with a sensational tart, tangy flavor.
When fully mature the sweetness level of this popular apple increases. This Australian native was discovered in 1868 as a chance seedling by Anne Smith of Ryde, New South Wales. One parent might have been a French Crab Apple.
Grannys are known for the distinctive green flesh, which sometimes bears a red blush, and their very tart flavour. An all-purpose apple, Grannys work equally well as a snack, in pies or as a sauce.
