Granny Smith

USD $18.99 Tax Included

Due for release ANZ June 2022


The original Granny Smith was in fact more famous in her lifetime for being the local midwife than she was for her now internationally acclaimed green apples, hence her name. In 1868, Maria Ann Smith, then 69 years old, found the seedling growing by a creek on her property near Sydney. She believed that the seedling had grown from French crab apples. Granny Smith began to cultivate this new apple tree. With patience and resilience, from little things, big things grow, including love.
