DWARF APPLE - GRANNY SMITH

Granny Smith compliments of Bliss and GessoBotanical Name: Malus domestica
Description

The Dwarf Granny Smith apple tree 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. Perform best in cooler regions.

Question & Answer

I intend to purchase at least one of each of these two trees. I live in Sydney and in the Bankstown area (approximately 30km west of Sydney). Is this the right time of year to plant these trees? Do you have these trees currently in stock? From: BASS HILL NSW

yes you can plant this time of year if it suits. We do have both of these in stock now. Alternatively we will have them available in winter when most people prefer to plant. #DwarfApple814 #AppleRed3244

Hi, just wondering if you ship this to South Australia when they're ready? I am also wondering this for the dwarf Granny Smith apple and the Ballerina Apple Flamenco as well. Thanks so much. From: MARDEN SA

Hi Lydie, At this stage we are not sending citrus to SA due to quarantine, we are working on becoming accredited at this stage so this may change in the future, please check again with us in 2015. We currently have the dw Granny, here is the link #DwarfApple814 but we will not have ballerinas until winter 2015 #AppleFlamenco2502 To find out how much freight will cost to your address please drop the items you are interested in into the checkout and enter your postcode, or visit http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/Freight-Special.php and enter your postcode..

Dwarf Apple - Granny Smith (Grafted) 10/10

HomegrownHeddibles1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2996 days 10hrs

Comments: -

Kept to 2.5 metres high by summer & winter pruning, if it is a dwarf it's the tallest in the world!

A lovely, hardy, prolific tree, it produced a fabulous crop two years after it was planted.  It grows vigorously in Spring and Summer, so we keep it pruned to a manageable 2 metres or so to enable us to reach the fruit and haul the netting over it.

The apples, bred in Australia in the 1800s, are perfect for cooking (they make the very best apple pies, apple sauce, jams and jellies), baking, treating diarrhoea (grate the fruit, skin and all and eat it - the pectin sets both jam and poo!) or eating fresh.  Tart and sweet at the same time they are very refreshing and make the mouth tingle with pleasure.

 Dwarf Granny Smith purchased early Feb 2010 to aid pollination for my pinkabells, and of course to eat and cook with :) It is nearly at full height and I know it will produce well as it had fruit when I purchased it from Tass1, but I removed them before transplanting.

Comments: - Dwarf Granny Smith Apple. I want it for its cooking apples and as a pollinator. So far its growth has indeed been moderate however it is still in a small pot. One point of concern is upward curling leaves. hasn't affected the fruit set as I just today (end of Nov) cut off 15 little apples.

Granny Smiths are old fashioned I know. Did you hear they are a great companion for Pink Ladies and Pinkabelle? It's true. They are crisp and tangy for fruit salads and also give a pleasing twist to a home made Vege Juice with Carrot and Celery. You can also add a little Beetroot if you like. One lady I met adds a touch of Ginger instead. I may place a recipe on my hobby-site!

I bought the book "Growing Apples in the Tropics" by Kevin Hauser from Kufflel Creek Nursery where he advocates that it is   possible to obtain decent apple crops from varieties that have chill hours above those accepted as low chill varieties and that he sells his trees into the warmer areas of Africa.

So my Dwarf Royal Gala and Granny Smith are going to be grown using his methods. Already my Anna and Tropic sweet are flowering using his methods. Not enough yet for pollination but we are still 2 weeks from spring!

I prefer eating this over a pink lady apple any day. Not only they're more juicier but their flesh has a better texture with more of a crisp crunch. 

We ended up purchasing this after we found out that one of our fruit trees wasn't a green apple tree but a Quince tree (but that's another story lol)!

has flowered each year but pinkabelle I had died during winter so granny did not have a pollinator.  A new apple tree has sprung up where the pinkabelle was - hopefully another pinkabelle but did not flower this year (it's first year), but for some reason the granny smith did and some flowers have turned into fruit???  A neighbour must have a pollinator for it?? Fruit ended up falling off ):

Just repotted into a larger pot and straightened it up, have a good feeling about this year.

Flowered beautifully but not one translated into a fruit.  Seems my pinkabelle and granny smith don't like to flower at the same time even though they should.
