History

Cultivated for more than one hundred forty years and named in honor of Maria Ana (Granny) Smith, this apple's accidental beginning was the result of crab apple seeds that somehow found their way into her garden. Having its origins in Australia, this apple remains a celebrated fruit in that country. Every October, a grand festival in this renowned apple's honor is held in Sydney, Australia, commemorating the works of Maria Ana (Granny Smith). This apple matures six weeks after the Red Delicious.
