My Experience

Meet the apple that doesn’t hold back. Granny Smith will make anyone’s face pucker up thanks to its strong tartness. It’s very firm with loads of juice and lemon-like acidity and just enough sweetness.

Granny Smith is a true use-it-for-anything apple. It’s one of the best to bake and cook with, a favorite for dipping with peanut butter, and it won’t brown quickly, making it ideal for salads, fruit platters, freezing and more.

My Story

Maria Ann (Granny) Smith discovered a green apple growing on her property in Australia in 1868 in the same place that she often tossed French crab apples grown in Tasmania. The seedling developed into bright green colored apples that are now one of the most well-known apples thanks to its tart flavor and baking abilities.

The parentage of Granny Smith is still uncertain, but many believe it is a cross between the French Crab apple and the Rome beauty. Washington apple growers began growing the variety commercially in the late 1960s and it continues to be a go-to for tart apple lovers everywhere.

My Story

Granny Smith apples originated in Australia in 1868 when Maria Ann (Granny) Smith found a seedling growing by a creek on her property. This was the same place where she would toss French crab apples grown in Tasmania. The seedling bore light-green-colored apples that Granny Smith propagated. She found the new apple to be great for both cooking and snacking. Washington apple growers began growing this apple commercially in the late 1960s. Today, Granny Smith is one of the most well-known apple varieties around, known for its bright green color and tart flavor.
