[nafex] Re: Granny Smith apple origin

An article in an early Pomona reprinted in one of the "Pomona in 
Reviews" stated that the cultiver Mrs. Smith of Sydney bought, from 
the seed of which Granny Smith grew, was the old English 
cultivar "French Crab" which is still in existence; I think that 
Bultitude's book lists it. It is apparently well thought of by some 
who know it.
