The Greening is a true American heirloom variety that dates back to around 1650. It is a crisp, juicy, and tart apple similar in flavor to Granny Smith. The uniformly round apples ripen from a dull green to a waxy yellow in late September. It is an apple that benefits from cooking to bring out the sugars and soften its hard flesh while still holding its shape. The trees take six or more years before setting fruit, but it is a heavy-yielding tree once it reaches fruition.
