Description

The ultimate cooking apple! Characteristic bright green skins cover the creamy white flesh which has a distinctive tart flavour. Apple 'Granny Smith' is a favourite for its texture which retains its shape after cooking - perfect for tarts and pies. This is an excellent choice for adding to salads as it is less likely to brown than other apples. For those who enjoy a sharp flavour, these fruits can also be eaten freshly picked in November. Apple ‘Granny Smith’ stores exceptionally well (right through to April), so a glut of fruits should never be a problem!

How to Grow
Plant apple trees in any well drained soil in a sheltered sunny position. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole and drive the stake into the ground to support the tree. Staking after planting may result in damage to the root ball. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level and firm them into the ground. Fasten the tree to the stake using a tree tie, and water well.
More Info

Fruit trees do not suffer weed competition well. Keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the tree, taking care not to mound it up against the stem. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Feed and water apple trees during particularly dry periods.

Pruning apple trees begins immediately after planting. Remove the central stem to just above the highest side branch. For the following 3 years, prune only the tips of the remaining main branches by one third in winter. Aim for about six main branches which will form the frame of your tree, with fruiting sub branches growing off of them. From the fourth year, some sub branches can be pruned out at the union where they join the main branch, to allow new sub branches to take their place.

In order to produce the best quality, largest apples, the fruits should be thinned in July leaving two apples remaining per cluster.
