Granny Smith Apple Tree Pollination
Granny Smith apple trees are self-pollinators. This means that they are self-fertile, and don’t require other adjacent trees to bloom and produce fruit. However, Granny Smith apple trees do best with a cross pollinator such as Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, or Fuji.
Granny Smith Apple Tree Size
Our semi-dwarf variety of Granny Smith apple trees will grow to about 8 to 15 feet in height with anywhere from 8 to 15 feet of branch width. Their size makes them a great choice for small gardens and backyards. Granny Smith apple trees will grow best with full sunlight. Near-full sunlight (with partial shade) is also acceptable if you live in an especially hot climate in the southwest.
How long does it take to grow a Granny Smith apple tree?
A Granny Smith apple tree will take 3 to 5 years to reach full maturity and bear fruit. Keep in mind that cross-pollination with other apple trees will improve your Granny Smith’s ability to bear fruit.
When Do Granny Smith Apple Trees Bloom?
Like many other types of apple trees, Granny Smith apple trees will bloom in the springtime. White flowers will emerge from your tree in April or May, with apples emerging in the fall. Expect dozens of ready-to-pick green apples in October and November.
All About Granny Smith Apple Fruit

Granny Smith Apples are the perfect cooking apples for almost anything. Meals, snacks, or desserts, cider or juice, apple pie, and sauces…they have a variety of culinary uses.
The juicy, white flesh with lovely, bright green skin (occasionally with a subtle, pink blush) is likewise energizing, with a crisp, tart flavor. Granny Smith Apples’ high acidity content makes them long-lived once cut, meaning they won’t go brown as quickly. They are perfect for fruit trays and salads and also have a long shelf life.
