Granny Smith

Melinda. The most fragrant of the Granny Smiths.

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.

APPEARANCE

Intense green colour. Thick skin, with many white, clearly visible spots. Truncated-cone shape, medium-large size.

FLAVOUR

Typically tart. Very juicy, fresh and characteristic.

PULP

Crisp, particularly compact and firm.

HOW TO ENJOY THEM

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.

HOW TO STORE GRANNY SMITH MELINDAS

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.
