Granny Smith apples are bright green, with white flesh, very juicy and very firm. Their flavour is pleasantly tart-sweet, with a crunchy texture. Granny Smith apples are most often used in baking preparations because of their high acidity and ability to hold their shape under cooking but can also be eaten raw.
