Granny Smith are a classic green apple, with a creamy-white flesh, and tart flavour. This variety originated in NSW in the late 1800’s, and is a favourite for using in apple pies and crumbles.
We look for apples with firm, smooth skin – our apples are often a funny shape, and may have cosmetic blemishes, but knowing that this does not affect the nutritional benefits or flavour of the fruit, we are more than happy to enjoy our tasty yet ugly apples.
Apples are a good source of fibre and Vitamin C, and contain an impressive range of phytonutrients. Many of the nutrients are concentrated in the skin of apples, so be sure to enjoy the whole fruit – including the skin – to get the most nutritional benefit.
Keep your apples crisp and delicious by storing them in the fridge.
