A Granny Smith sitting in the midst of Red Delicious. We know them as Granny Smith apples but the full name is the Granny Ramsey Smith green apple. It was created in 1868 through a chance propagation by Maria Ann Smith in New South Wales Australia. A hundred years later in 1968 the Beatles' Apple Records adopted a Granny Smith apple as its symbol. Canon G10, 1/160 sec @ f/3.2, ISO 400 in macro mode.
