APPLE - GRANNY SMITH
Botanical Name: Malus domestica
Has a tart-tangy, crisp flavour and bright green skin. One of the best apples for eating out of hand and a very good cooking apple because of its ability to retain flavour. The Granny requires about 600 hours of chill . High potential for self pollination.

Very happy with Granny, it had nice bursts of growth shortly after planting, and settled in nicely before winter. I'm expecting spring growth soon.
Sun/Shade: Full Sun
Pollination: Cross Pollination
Cross Pollinator Variety: Pinkabelle?
I will most likely use exclusion bags, and am preparing the surrounding beds to plant companion ground covers to help deter moths etc.
Does the Pinkabelle cross pollinate the Granny Smith or is it only the other way around? Do I need a third apple tree?
