'Leprechaun'™ DWARF Granny Smith

The Plant

Looking for a Pinkabelle pollinator or just love green apples? Look no further. Our 'Leprechaun'™ Dwarf Granny Smith Apple will help you achieve the best results for fruiting your Pinkabelle Apple.

It is a compact, spur bearing dwarf Granny Smith  apple variety. Leprechaun™ Dwarf Granny Smith  grows to approximately 2.0-2.5 metres tall by approximately 2.0-2.5 metre wide. It produces full size, high quality Granny Smith apples. It also requires minimal PRUNING! It is part of our Backyard Beauties Range 

What does this mean? LeprechaunTM Dwarf Granny Smith is a true dwarf which means the tree is dwarfing - not the rootstock which is usually the case for other dwarfing apple trees. This means we can use a non dwarfing rootstock to grow our trees, which are generally more robust and water efficient.

 The original Granny Smith apple was originally found in Ryde, NSW, and is a deciduous tree that produces a green, crisp-flesh eating apple suitable for eating straight from the tree or cooking a lovely apple pie! 'Leprechaun'™ Dwarf Granny Smith occurred naturally as a branch on a Granny Smith apple tree.

 A Spring flush of flowers will add life to your garden and bring the bees coming in to do their work. Can handle slightly warmer climates than most apples.

The  LeprechaunTM Dwarf Granny Smith thrives in organic soil as do all fruit trees.

The Pollinators

All apples need pollinators. LeprechaunTM Dwarf Granny Smith  is partially self fertile, which means it will set small amounts of fruit without a pollinator - HOWEVER - it will benefit from cross pollination, which will result in more fruit setting on your plant.

Pinkabelle® is an ideal pollination partner,or Crab apples, Gala, Fuji and Red Delicious apple varieties are some of the most common Granny Smith cross pollinators.

Not recommended for coastal QLD and Northern NSW as winters are not cold enough to produce fruit.
