About the Granny
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.
