Granny Smith is spring green with gray dots called lenticels. The crisp flesh is greenish white, the peel on the tough side. It is a tart pie and fresh eating apple. Harvest begins in mid-October.
Anne Smith, an emigrant from England to Australia, found the first chance seedling of Granny Smith on her property in the 1860s. Possibly it grew from the seed of a French Crab. By the 1930s, they were being exported to England.
