Even with benign neglect, will grow here and produce a few apples but does not seem to like the heavy clay soil, heat, or the high winds (Decatur, TX). Pity, as it's my very favorite apple. Very tart. Keeps extremely well in refrigerator for weeks or even months. Great for eating. Wonderful dehydrated.

Granny Smith is a fine commercial apple originating in Australia in 1868. It is one of the few all-green apples that have gained popularity in the American market. It is a good keeper and considered by many to be one of the best cooking apples, making excellent applesauce and apple juice. The fruit is medium sized with a dark to pale green skin with distinctive whitish dots. Crisp, firm, and juicy with a good balance of acids and sugars. Ripens Late September to October.
