    It looks to be a Pippin or a Granny Smith.

    I think it's a Granny Smith.  At least that is what I think.

    This variety of Apple is actually a tip-bearing apple cultivar, which originated in Australia in 1868.  It is named after Maria Ann Smith (Granny Smith) who propagated the cultivar from a chance seedling. The tree is thought to be a hybrid of Malus sylvestris, the European Wild Apple, with the domestic apple M. domestica as the polleniser.

      I think you're right! I looked at several apple charts, and Granny Smith looks most like the one on the label. Good work!

    Maybe a golden Delicious?  I prefer Granny smith, so it could be that.

      Looks too light coloured to be a Granny Smith. It's got to be a Golden Delicious - long on price and short on flavour. Grannies are a much darker green, like a Bramley cooking apple.

    It is a Granny Smith. In 1968, the Beatles returned from India and officially founded Apple Records as a division of Apple Corps Ltd.

    It is a Granny Smith. 

    For the anoraks smile A few records appeared with variations on the green - eg on the US issue of Let It Be, the apple was red.

    I'm assuming it's a Granny Smith. Why do you ask?
