Why Granny Smith Apple Trees?
Our Granny Smith Apple Tree is known for its quick production and easy growth. In fact, it produces fruit in record time, so you’ll pick delicious apples this year.
You’ll get unique tart flavor, effortlessly. Our Granny Smith doesn’t need harsh pesticides or even a specific soil type to thrive. You get adaptable, versatile growth and delectable Granny Smith Apples to use in snacks, desserts and more.
Plus, our Granny Smith is self-fertile. That means you get fruit with only one tree, though adding an additional Granny Smith in your garden results in a dramatically increased crop for you. Imagine tons of delicious apples, season after season, in your own backyard.
Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better
Many nurseries sell tall, skinny stems that can take several years to fruit and will generally be less productive when mature. But our Granny Smiths 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. Because 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!
Now, you reap the rewards. And with proper care, you’ll be able to start picking apples in the first year. Get your own Granny Smith Apple Tree and see its amazing growth for yourself!
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...
Planting & Care
1. Planting: First, select a location that receives at least 6 hours of sun each day. Other than that, your Granny Smith adapts to a variety of soil types. Once you're ready to plant, dig a hole twice the width of the root ball and just as deep. Then, place your tree, tamp down the soil and water to settle the soil. Finally, mulch around the tree for best results.
*Tip: Make sure your mulch is not touching the base of the trunk.
2. Watering: Your Granny Smith Apple will benefit from a regular watering schedule each week, though you may need to water more often in times of extreme heat or drought. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the soil or look for new growth. As soon as you see newer growth coming out of the tree or whenever the top 2 inches of the soil feel dry, it's time to water.
3. Pruning: Once your tree has become established and is starting to bear fruit, it will need some periodic, moderate pruning. Only prune the tree during times of dormancy, making sure to remove any vigorous, upright stems which are quite common in the upper portion of the tree. Weak, damaged or dead branches should also be removed.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- granny Smith
I ordered 5 trees and they arrived late but in good condition.
Well the shipping was on time and my apple trees were intact. So over all. Good job
It arrrived alive and had no problem planting it.
I ordered the Granny Smith tree on April 1st - it arrived in great shape within a few days. We used the Root Rocket packet and planted the tree as directed. It is thriving and doing very well after about 2 months in the ground. I stopped giving the tree supplemental water after the first month and it seems to be holding up well in this 50 - 70 degree spring we have had in New York. I ordered a Fuji tree at the same time and gave it the same treatment - it is also doing great! I will be posting the same review for the Fuji. Note that you need to make sure your apple trees have the correct varieties nearby for effective cross-pollination!
While the tree appeared to have a rough trip in transit, once planted, it has started to sprout new leaves, and appears to be a healthy tree. Again, can't wait to be making pies with the fresh apples.
