Pick Apples this year- Not in four years!

- Easily grown without pesticides

- Produces fruit in record time

- Adaptable to various types of soil

Granny Smith Apple Trees are fast growing, so you can pick delicious fruit in a fraction of the time.

They ripen in early November, and keep their unique tart flavor through winter and even spring!

Granny Smith Apples can be used for almost anything... meals, snacks, or desserts... and you don't have to wait 3 to 5 years to enjoy your fruit!

The Granny Smith Apple's firm, crisp skin rewards you for biting into it. Its pleasant tart flavor makes it versatile enough to be cooked with almost anything.

Your Granny Smith apple trees have been pruned back to promote more branching. More branches mean more fruit, earlier production, stronger limbs and a healthier tree. Some of our apple trees have already produced apples in our nursery!

Most nurseries sell tall, skinny stems with no branches - these are referred to as "whips". They can take several years to fruit and will generally be less productive when mature.

Our trees are pruned back and trained to develop a branching structure. This process takes more work and an extra year, but the difference you experience is dramatic.

With proper care, you will be able to start picking apples after the first season, or as soon as the first year under optimal conditions.





Granny Smith Apple Tree Pollination


Granny Smith Apple Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional pollinator will drastically increase the size of your crop. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...

Crabapple Trees also make some of the best pollinators for Fruiting Apple Trees. Because they bloom for a long period of time and produce an abundance of pollen that are compatible with most Fruiting Apple Tree varieties.

I took a chance and purchased the Granny Smith for my orchard. Shipping was great, it arrived early and nothing was damaged. For the price I was expecting more tree, this looked like something out of a Peanuts ""Charlie Brown"" special. It's puny. After a couple weeks it's still goin strong, if it produces next year I would recommend it, but for the price and them hyping up ""FAST GROWING"" trees may be misleading. If I do get fruit next year I will RATE higher.

Beautiful tres
I planted 3 in May, 2014. They were beautiful when they came. They didn't get planted 'til they were bone dry, yet all survived.. Two may not survive because of deer predation despite use of deer repellent. So far (it's January) of 30 fruit trees planted these are the only ones attacked by deer. That's not your fault!

Perfect Tree
I waited 2 years to write a review to see how the trees would do. I tended to these trees very little other than pruning. I did get a third pollinator from Home Depot. The difference in the trees are substantial. My pollinator is half the size with more twiggy branches and the lack of pruning when young has made that tree a challenge. It is nice to see the comparison since both were the same size. It was worth it in droves to pay a little extra for my Fast Growing Granny Smiths.

I have had no pest or disease problems. I got the larger trees and I'm glad I did. This year the trees are 12 feet high and loaded with apples. I am thrilled with these beautiful trees!

Granny Smith Apple Tree
This is the 4th fruit tree from Fast Growing Trees. I planted them all with large holes and good soil, watered when needed, however right away the leaves looked wilty as if
insects were present. I did not see any insects but sprayed the tree and it is finally getting new leaves near the bottom of the tree. We are looking forward to our first harvest of Granny Smith apples.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Granny Smith Apple Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Granny Smith Apple Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Granny Smith Apple Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Granny Smith Apple Tree again after the transplant is complete.

How long does it take for the tree to start producing fruit?
A shopper on Jul 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I got the 3ft tall Granny Smiths and it took them 2 year to produce fruit. They are 12 feet tall now and loaded with apples. However I know apple tree require so many hours of chill. We had a couple really warm winters here in Arkansas but this year it's perfect. We also have proper pollinators as well.
do I need a pollinator for granny smith fruit tree ?
Peter S on Jan 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Granny Smith Apple Trees are partially self-fertile. However, you will receive a much larger crop if pollinated by the following apple trees.. Gala, Winesap, Fuji, McIntosh, Honeycrisp, Pink Lady, Yellow Delicious, or the Red Delicious.
Are these dwarf Granny Smith trees?
Kathleen M on Aug 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Kathleen
Yes these are dwarf Granny Smith Apples. They max out at 15 ft. high but do not require near as much spacing for planting another tree. Regular Granny Smith needs 30 ft. between trees the dwarf only 18 ft. so you have room for your pollinator.
Granny Smith Apple Tree Pollination

Granny Smith Apple Trees are partially self-fertile. However, you will receive a much larger crop if pollinated by the following apple trees...

• Gala Apple Tree• Jonathan Apple Tree
• Fuji Apple Tree• McIntosh Apple Tree
• Honeycrisp Apple Tree• Pink Lady Apple Tree
• Yellow Delicious Apple Tree• Red Delicious Apple Tree


Crab Apple Trees also make some of the best pollinators for Fruiting Apple Trees. Because they bloom for a long period of time and produce an abundance of pollen that are compatible with most Fruiting Apple Tree varieties.

When is the best time for planting this tree.?
theresa r on Nov 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Theresa, I got my Granny Smith tree in 2014 in early summer, if I remember correctly. It was about 4 feet tall and had leaves on it. I didn't expect any fruit but to my surprise it had a couple of apples--of course the squirrels got them. But I followed the planting instructions and added a bit of bone meal. That "little" tree is now over 8' tall and growing fine. It has so many branches that I will have to trim them when it goes dormant. I did give it about a gallon of water a day through a pipe I put in the ground beside it--not recommended--but I plugged the pipe with a rag so no bugs could get in it, after each watering. So I would recommend planting after the last frost but no later than Sept. I believe it needs to establish a good root system to get started growing.
I want to get an apple tree as an anniversary gift but we also plan on moving in about a year and I want to plant it at out new home. Will the tree survive if it stays potted for a year? And how should it be cared for?
Angie M on Aug 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: a novice but, I think it would be fine so long as it's a large pot. When we first got our trees we had a big hailstorm that strip the leaves off so I was worried about them. I called the company's phone number and they were super helpful to answer questions. I would give them a call.
Are these GMO or non-GMO?
Kelly K on Aug 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All our products are non-GMO.
Are these granny smith trees considered drawf or semi drawf?
Lorie G on Aug 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Granny Smith Apples are semi-dwarf variety.
How will the Granny Smith Apple do in Zone 7?
gmartinez0003 on Jul 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Granny Smith Apple is good for zones 5 to 8 so it would do very well in your zone.
Can the granny smith apple tree be grown in a large container?
Jon E on Oct 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Apple really do not prefer to be planted in a container. It would be best to plant in the ground.
