LITTLE GREEN APPLES...
Little green apples on the apple tree. The Granny Smith is a tip-bearing apple cultivar, which originated in Australia in 1868. It is named after Maria Ann Smith, who propagated the cultivar from a chance seedling. The tree is thought to be a hybrid of Malus sylvestris, the European Wild Apple, with the domestic apple M. domestica as the pollinator. The fruit has hard, light green skin and a crisp, juicy flesh. Granny Smiths go from being completely green to turning yellow when overripe. The acidity mellows significantly on ripening, and it takes on a balanced flavour. This post is part of the Friday Greens meme.
And now we can't not mention "Little Green Apples" with Bobby Goldsboro (written by Bobby Russell in 1968). Here it is, enjoy!
