Description

Granny Smith apples have a firm, crunchy texture with green skin, sometimes with a slight pink blush. Their tart flavor makes them good eating apples, and they are especially popular for use in apple pies.

Maria Smith discovered a seedling growing out of a pile of discarded crabapples in Australia in 1868. Several local orchards began growing the apples she named after herself, Granny Smith.

The apple was introduced as a commercial variety in England in 1935 and brought to the United States in 1972.
