This Granny Smith apple tree is grown on miniature M27 stock. M27 is a rootstock that produces the smallest tree of all; maturing to around 180cm’s in height and width, this tree is ideal for a container or small garden, courtyard or allotment. It should be staked if in a windy or open position. Crops can exceed 20ibs per tree when established and this rootstock is quite precocious, often yielding the year following planting.
Granny Smith is an Australian variety named in the 1800’s and grown in most warmer countries of the world. A very late ripening variety, leave Granny Smith on the tree as long as possible before harvesting and enjoy from storage.
