Description

The Granny Smith apple tree produces a medium sized, bright green, firm apple. One bite into this tart apple will have your taste buds tingling and your tummy begging for more. Not only is the Granny Smith known as one of the best eating apples, it is also widely used in baking, sauces, and preserves. In fact this variety is the top choice for apple pies. You can even elevate the flavor of salads and sandwiches with this bold, crisp apple.

The Granny Smith apple tree leaps to life with pretty white blooms in spring, bestowing the promise of ripe fruit to enjoy by October. This tree thrives in full to part sun and moist, well-drained soil. The mature size of this tree is 15 to 20 feet tall and about 15 feet wide. The Granny Smith is self-fertile so you only need one tree to enjoy plenty of fruit for your family. However, to ensure that the highest quality and quantities of fruit are produced pair your Granny Smith with Gala, Golden or Red Delicious, Fuji, Honeycrisp, or a Profusion Crabapple tree.

Apples are high in fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins A and C. It is a snack that everyone in the family can enjoy. With an abundance of apples produced year after year, the Granny Smith Apple tree is the ultimate giving tree. Due to its rich, tart flavor and crisp texture, it is a great eating and cooking apple. Get your baking pan and canning jars ready because the Granny Smith apple tree can be yours today!

How To Care

When planting your Granny Smith Apple tree be sure to choose the right location and conditions for your new tree to thrive. Spring and Fall are ideal times to plant. However, if you avoid freezing temperatures and extreme heat you can plant your apple tree almost any time of the year.

Apple trees thrive in full to part sun and well drained soil. Water deeply when planting and twice weekly for 3 months while your tree is establishing. For the first year, we recommend watering deeply once weekly in spring and summer and once monthly in fall in winter after the establishment period. After the first year you will only need to water during dry spells. Adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch is recommended especially with newly planted trees. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Fertilize in early spring and when planting to give your tree a boost. Choose a balanced, slow release fertilizer like the one we carry here. Prune your apple in late winter to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. Scale, Aphids, Mites, and Apple Maggots are insects that can affect Apple trees. You can treat the scale, mites, and aphids naturally with horticultural oil, neem oil, or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. Apple Maggot can be treated simply with traps you can purchase at any garden center. Apple trees can encounter fungal issues. Generally, treating after infection isn't extremely effective, so if you have problems yearly treat in early spring with fungicides to prevent infection. Neem Oil is an organic method of treating and preventing some fungal diseases and pests. It can be effective, but the entire tree must be coated in order for this method to be effective.
