Granny Smith Apple Tree

The Granny Smith apple tree (Malus domestica 'Granny Smith') is a popular cultivar of apple tree that is known for its tart, green apples. The tree is thought to have originated in Australia in the late 1800s, and is named after Maria Ann Smith, who discovered the seedling tree.

Granny Smith apple trees are typically vigorous growers, and can reach heights of 20-30 feet. They have a rounded crown and spreading branches. The leaves are dark green and oval-shaped. The flowers are white and pink, and bloom in the spring.

Granny Smith apples are medium to large in size, and have a bright green skin. The flesh is white and crisp, with a tart flavor. The apples are typically ripe in late fall, and can be stored for several months.

Granny Smith apples are a versatile fruit that can be eaten fresh, cooked, or baked. They are often used in pies, cakes, and other desserts. They can also be used to make cider and jelly.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Note
Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
