The Granny Smith Apple is a green apple offering a sour tart acidic taste with a light green juicy skin. The apple’s body is dense and firm and often used for baking because of its firmness. When the Granny Smith Apple turns yellow, the apple becomes overripe.
The Granny Smith Apple originated in Australia in 1868. It’s believed to be a cultivar from a chance seedling of the hybrid of Malus sylvestris (the European wild apple), with the domesticated apple Malus Domestica as the pollenizer.
