Granny Smith apples are famous for their bright green skin and their tart and tangy flavour. They are a firm and juicy apple with thick skin and bright white flesh. As Granny Smith’s develop in maturity, the sweetness levels of the apple also increases. Did you know that Granny Smith’s were first grown in Sydney, Australia through chance seedling by a woman named Maria Ann ‘Granny’ Smith?
They have a higher acidity content which means they brown at a slower rate when cut, they are also the perfect apple for cooking and baking into apple cakes and pies. Due to their tart flavour, Granny Smith’s are also a fine choice for ciders and tossing through summer salads.
