comment Was the Granny Smith Apple the first green skinned apple widely propagated?
@coleopterist - And what do I mean by green? And how would I define apple? The green apples came about by chance, a mutation, so I guess it could have happened elsewhere, but another person didn't take advantage of it by taking it to market. So was the GS the first green apple to be widely sold.
