April to December. Granny Smith spends the latter months of its availability in controlled atmosphere (CA) storage.
Granny Smith was named in honour of Maria Ana (Granny) Smith. This apple was created accidentally when crab apple seeds somehow found their way into her garden and Granny Smiths have now been harvested for over one hundred and forty years. It originated in Australia and is now celebrated in that country every October. A festival takes place in Sydney in the apple's honour and to commemorate Maria Ana (Granny) Smith.
