Reviewed By: Lori Malson (Gaskin, Florida)
We have a 4 year old Granny Smith standard that has went through a hail storm,a huricane, a bitter cold winter that split the trunk. That is all healed now. And our bull attacked the tree snapping the main top out. That has healed now also. I wish I could show you the picture of it today. It looks great. Loaded with blooms. Gurneys really has tough apple trees. We are so very pleased. Thank you, Lori

Granny Smith
Reviewed By: Steve (CDA, ID)
"Its the apple that tart flavor lovers crave. This is why its often used in Carmel apples to give that sweet/sour combo. I've never had it fresh and since they stay fresh in cold storage forever, thats why theyre in stores everywhere. So that Granny Smith you get on sale at your grocery store may be over a year old from thousands miles away, ""New Zealand most often. Compact but spreading shape. Resists cedar apple rust. I'm not a big fan of sour apples so that is why I only give it a 3 but it may be higher if I had it fresh. However if you love sour apples, then look no further!"
