Green Smith

Granny Smith apples on the tree

Green Smith – so reads the bin label in more than one Italian supermarket, referring to Granny Smith apples. Presumably they can’t quite believe that Granny isn’t a misspelling for the apple’s most obvious attribute.

This was our effort at growing our own – it’s the first year the tree has had any half-way respectable fruit.

The apples weren’t quite as respectable as they look, though. I took the photo from an angle so as not to show any worm holes.

Also the density of apples isn’t representative; most of the tree didn’t have much on it at all.

So now I’ve confessed, maybe I can say I was a little bit proud all the same!
