Abstract

The Granny Smith, since its introduction into Western Australia about 1914, has had a very decided influence on the apple industry in this State. It has for many years now been the main variety and at present is approaching 50 per cent, of plantings. The general age level is considerably below that for the other important varieties and with its domination of new plantings in recent years production can be expected to increase considerably at the expense of the other varieties, particularly Cleos and Dunns, and some of the red varieties. The annual production has been as high as a million bushels in a heavy year.
