Granny Smith Apple

Granny Smith Apple

The Granny Smith was first cultivated in 1868 and is named for Maria Ann Smith. Presently it is unknown what trees got it on to make the Granny Smith but they think it’s the product of a wild tree and a domestic tree.

These are hard green apples with a strong crunch and tart flavor. I also notice that they last longer than other apples. Shelf life is kind of the thing with me because I don’t actually like apples. What, I’m fat?!


Anyway, I buy these apples rather often and they last long enough for me to eat a good half of them before I cut them up and freeze them. I make smoothies with the frozen fruit. If you’re into that like I am the Granny Smith is a good solid buy.
