Irresistible colour, unique flavour.
It is the most famous "green apple": the Granny Smith is one of the oldest apples and bears the name of its English discoverer, "Granny" Smith. It is the "diet apple" par excellence, because it has little sugar and is very acidic. It ripens late, in mid-October, and can be stored well for a long time. It is rich in potassium, which is also why it is preferred by athletes.
Intense green colour. Thick skin, with many white, clearly visible spots. Truncated-cone shape, medium-large size.
Typically tart. Very juicy, fresh and characteristic.
Crisp, particularly compact and firm.
It is excellent raw, with the skin (just rinse it under water) or without. But it is also the most popular apple to cook.
If you want to savour it in all its fragrance, we suggest eating it preferably within seven days of purchase.
After bringing them home, place them in the fruit and vegetable compartment of your fridge (ideal temperature 3-4 °C) for the shortest amount of time, and remove no more than two hours before eating them. Avoid storing them at room temperature for several days.
