Malus domestica 'Granny Smith' is one of the best known apple cultivars noted for its firm, crisp texture and super-tart flavor. Perfect for baking and for eating, 'Granny Smith' apples are ready for harvest in October but will also keep fresh for up to 6 months after picking if kept cool. Growing on dwarf or semi-dwarf rootstock to between 8' and 15' tall, 'Granny Smith' makes for a great shade or specimen tree that provides green fruit into the fall.
Malus domestica grows best in well-drained moderately fertile, loams, and produces showy white-pink, fragrant flowers in early spring, which attract a variety of pollinators.
Apple trees require cross-pollination to produce fruit, and therefore require at least one pollinating partner for successful fruit harvest; some of these for 'Granny Smith' include 'Golden Delicious' and 'Pristine.'
