The dwarf Apple Granny Smith (Malus domestica) is a one of the best apples for eating fresh, and a very good cooking apple because of its ability to retain flavour.  It is a crisp bright green apple with a  tart-tang flavour.

Although self- pollinating to a certain degree, to achieve optimal yields,  Granny Smith is best planted near another compatible variety for cross-pollination.  Ideal companions are Pink Lady and Red Delicious

Granny Smith is what is called a ‘Universal Pollinator’ as it has a long flowering season and therefore overlaps with many Apples and as such is a very useful variety to have with any other variety.

Granny Smith is regarded as a medium chill variety and will grow well in both medium chill and high chill climate.. See our guide to check if your local climate is suitable for medium chill apples   Guide to Chilling Hours in Australia

Our grafted  apple trees are 60 to 80 cm tall, sun hardened and ready to plant into the ground or a large pot… these are not bare root trees, they are grown in pots and have a well established root system.

The trees are grafted onto a selected dwarfing rootstock (MM106 or Northern Spy). They will grow to less than half the size of a regular tree but produce fruit that is the same size and quality.

Pruning, spraying and harvesting is much easier to manage  dwarf apple trees and they often come into regular bearing earlier than the standard counterpart. Initially they grow at much the same rate but once the dwarf trees get around 1.5m they begin to slow down and settle into maturity.

Please note: due to quarantine restrictions plants cannot be sent to Northern Territory, Tasmania or Western Australia.
