About This Product

Granny Smith is the most popular green apple in the United States. This vigorous tree is almost sure to outgrow other apple varieties within the first 3-years of planting. This means that a Granny Smith tree will usually bear fruit sooner than other apples as well. Not to mention that Granny Smith is extremely cold hardy, thriving in places where most apple trees couldn't survive. The firm, juicy fruit is a bright green color and due to its cold tolerance, the tree has been known to produce apples well into December.

Highlights

  • Granny Smith is 1 of the fastest growing of all apple cultivars
  • Granny Smith is very cold hardy, surviving harsh winters where other apple varieties wouldn't stand a chance
  • No apple is more widely used for cooking and baking than Granny Smith
  • Granny Smith is both self-pollinating and one of the best pollinators for other apple cultivars
  • Apples tend to cling onto a Granny Smith tree instead of falling to the ground, attracting all manner of wildlife throughout the winter

    Answer This Question

    A:  The one I received took a few weeks to start budding out, give it some time for the roots to settle and grow

    by|Jun 18, 2022

      A:  Within two weeks, you should see some sign of life. At a minimum, I would do a scratch test anywhere along the truck of the tree, especially the lower portion above ground. If you do not see green from where you scratch, the tree is most likely dead. If you see green continue to water and care for the tree. The best time to plant a tree is early in the year before the heat sets in. Best wishes to you.

            The other Reviews made me nervous! I still took a chance and here is my outcome. It came bare root with no leaves. I planted it the same day I received it.hope this helps.

                  even for a bare root this is pathetic, I have tried to write actual detailed review several times...
                  even for a bare root this is pathetic, I have tried to write actual detailed review several times but home depot rejects every review forcing customers to only see there cherry picked reviews I believe this will be the sixth review I have submitted for there approval, hardly a fare rating system.

                    Tree came damaged. I had to cut top off. Hope it will still grow unhappy with delivery.
