Melissa’s Organic Granny Apples get their name from its founder, Mrs. Maria Ann (Granny) Smith. The variety has a solid green exterior with a greenish to yellowish-white, fine-grained flesh. The taste is mildly sweet with a tart after taste, which sweetens in storage.
These are available organic and “Melissa's Certified Organic Produce is free of artificial or synthetic fertilizers and full of unforgettable, great tasting flavor. Our farmers use traditional earth-friendly farming methods inspected by a nationally recognized agency to verify organic authenticity. Melissa's Organic Produce, a choice made closer to nature.”
Although not particularly good for baking, it lends itself well to normal cooking in addition to pies, cakes, compotes, spreads, chutneys, sauces and salads.
