Initially from New Zealand, this apple thrives in our warmer climate. The fruit is medium-sized but prolific in numbers. Rated as the best apple for baking, Granny Smith apples are excellent to eat right off the tree too. Some folks like to shake a touch of salt on them as well. In addition, all apples are known for providing multiple essential vitamins, fiber, and antioxidant qualities. Granny Smith apple trees are self-fruiting, so you only need one tree to enjoy these great apples from your own garden. Look for fruit ripening by late summer in most areas.
