Granny Smith were discovered in Australia by chance as a seedling on the compost pile of Maria Smith's orchard. They were first introduced to Britain in the 1930's and later to America in the 1970's.

Growing Facts

  • Most apples sold commercially are grown from trees that consist of two parts grafted together
  • A farmer takes a cutting from a healthy tree of a particular apple variety and grafts it on to the roots of other apple trees (rootstock), which are good at growing
  • Farmers do this to reduce the amount of damage from temperature extremes, pests and disease
  • The fruit that is grown will be the same variety as the cutting, not the rootstock
  • In New Zealand, Nelson, Hawkes Bay and Otago are the main growing regions, although apples are grown in many other parts of New Zealand
