Granny Smith

Granny Smith

Granny Smith

This variety is a good dessert apple, but it needs a lot of sun and warmth to fully mature flavourwise. It is a strong grower and a healthy tree. It easily sets fruit. It has good pollination qualities and is, in most areas of the UK, a heavy cropper. It needs to be picked very late, around early November time. It lacks flavour, but later in the season it becomes quite sweet. It stores well. Best eaten well after Christmas.
