Granny Smith 

Granny Smith

Recognised around the world. The Granny Smith was grown by accident in 1868 by Maria Anne Smith, in the Ryde district of New South Wales. Usually Granny Smiths have a bright green finish to the skin, however Granny Smiths grown in Orange will often have a little extra time on the tree to ripen making them eat sweeter than most.

Available from May/June

 

Braeburn

The Braeburn originated in New Zealand by crossing a Lady Hamilton with a Granny Smith. The variety has a very strong red and gold green colour skin. It is a good eating apple with firm, juicy flesh and a sweet-tart flavour. The flesh of Braeburns is a pale cream colour, and lends itself well to use in salads and apple crumble.

Available May-November

 

Sundowner

SundownerTM is the brand name for the best quality apples from the Cripps Red variety. Sundowner apples are very similar in taste, colour and texture to Pink LadyTM apples. The weather during growing periods determines the skin colour variation from greenish red to deep pinky red. Sundowner apples are not overly firm, but are flavoursome in eating, with an excellent balance of sweetness.
