Granny Smith Apple Tips & Trivia

  • The Granny Smith apple gets its name from its founder, Mrs. Mary Ann (Granny) Smith.
  • Rub cut apples with lemon juice to keep slices and wedges creamy white for hours.
  • Store apples in a plastic bag in the refrigerator away from strong-odored foods such as cabbage or onions to prevent flavor transfer.
