Description

Malus domestica 'Granny Smith'

This has become one of the most popular late season apples grown world wide. Thank Australian Maria Ann "Granny" Smith for bringing us this favorite apple back in the mid-1800s. It's much loved for its firm, crisp, juicy and tart flesh that is ideal for fresh eating or in cooking. It has a long harvest period beginning in late September when it is harvested bright green for holiday pies or let it hang on the tree and develop its yellow blush through October and November and the sweetness of this fine fresh eating apple come alive. Really a early winter apple the Granny Smiths great unique flavor is realized closer to Christmas when the apples will often hang until after leaf drop. The Granny Smith apple stores well for long periods, and has become the traditional apple used for pies.

Planting & Care

Apples tolerate a wide range of soil types, but like all fruit trees grow best in well-drained, loamy soil. Provide full sun favoring the morning sun with at least 8 hours of direct sunlight. Apple favor higher humidity's and moderate summer temperatures, in hot dry climates protect the tree from sunburn by providing protection from the late afternoon sun. Either by providing shade or with whitewashing the trunk. Water at least twice a week for the first year. Keep the soil evenly moist, but not wet. Mulch the tree to 3 to 4 inches deep and and 3 to 4 feet outside the canopy of the tree. To keep root cool and cut down on soil evaporation. Apples benefit from pruning to maintain size and structure. Keep trees at less than 10 feet to allow for easy care and harvest. Check with your local ag extension to find the apple care recommendations for your area.
