Granny Smith Apple Tree - A true culinary delight for fresh eating, baking, and cooking! (2 years old and 3-4 feet tall.)
Granny Smith is the worlds most popular green apple! This vigorous tree is almost sure to outgrow other apple varieties within the first three years of planting, meaning that a Granny Smith tree typically bears fruit sooner than other apples cultivars as well. Another important quality of Granny Smith is its extreme cold hardiness, thriving in harsh winter conditions where most apple trees couldn’t. The firm, juicy fruit is a bright green color and due to its cold tolerance, the tree has been known to produce apples well into December!
