    The U.S. Apple Association shares facts and recipe ideas for the Granny Smith apple.

    Female Speaker: Here is the Granny Smith, one of the most popular apples in America. Grannies are known for their distinctive green flesh which sometimes bears a pink blush and they're very tart flavored. They are truly an all purpose apple that works equally well as a snack or in pies and sauce.

    US Grannies are harvested beginning in August and are available year-round. My tip: Grannies has a tart flavor that pairs perfectly with sweetness. That makes it my favorite apple for baking apple crisp.

    You will find many great recipes online for this delicious and easily made desert. You can also find a variety of readymade mixes that will shorten the time from the cutting board to the table. On the go or in the kitchen, the Granny Smith won't let you down.
