Granny Smith Apple

Malus x domestica 'Granny Smith'

SKU
06105
One of the best cooking apples, Granny Smith has crisp, tart and juicy fruit with a good balance of acids and sugars. Medium-sized apples have pale to medium green skin with distinctive whitish dots. Requiring only 400 to 500 winter chill hours, and a longer season to ripen, this variety is favored in mild winter areas. Deciduous.

Watering NeedsWater deeply, regularly - weekly, or more in extreme heat or containers.

Provide enriched, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to develop an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Apply fertilizer in early spring. Prune as needed to remove dead wood and to maintain desired size and shape. Thin heavy crops in late spring to prevent damage from overbearing.
