Granny Smith apple
Granny Smith
Granny Smith is one of the rather sour apples as it contains a high quantity of fruit acids. Typical traits: juicy and covered by a crunchy peel. The aroma of Granny Smith is slightly reminiscent of red berries and citrus fruits as well as light notes of marzipan or almond. The aftertaste of the peel is reminiscent of green pepper.

Evi Florian, apple farmer from Kaltern/Caldaro, about the Granny Smith
The Granny Smith apple variety is unique in the apple world with its green colour and very sour taste, making it the exact counterpart to the Golden Delicious. To mature completely, this variety needs a very warm climate, which it finds in South Tyrol and especially in the Etschtal valley. Interestingly, however, this apple is actually very sun-shy.
