Similar to Granny Smith

Posted: Sun Apr 12, 2015 3:42 am
Can anyone recommend a few varieties of apple that i can grow in the north west of England that are similar to a granny smith, i like the firm texture and the acidity, a lot of other apples i find too watery/mushy

I was set on buying a granny smith tree but it seems the fruit is unlikely to ripen where we live

Sturmer Pippin is quite similar to Granny Smith - but also unlikely to ripen in your area.

Instead, why not try some cooking apple varieties - they will have the acidity of Granny Smith, if not the dense texture.
