BELONGS TO CATEGORIES Fruit trees

Granny Smith is a famous apple variety from Australia from late 1800´s. It is renowned for sharp flavour and tough, lime green skin. Fruit eaten fresh is chrunchy and juicy. Thanks to firm texture it is ideal for cooking as it keeps its shape. Fruit matures late and stores well.

Granny Smith apples grown in our climate are medium-sized. Do not expect the super large fruit you find in supermarkets – those usually come from countries with hot and long summers and are well fed. It grows medium fast and has high yield. Self fertile.

Apple trees should be pruned in mid-winter. Remove vertical branches and shorten side branches. Fruiting wood is mostly horizontal. It is fully hardy but needs to be placed in full sun and a warm location to fruit well.
