The Rhode Island Greening is one of the first varieties of apple produced in American by European colonists. The Greening dates back to aproximately 1650 when Rhode Island tavern owner named Mr. Green produced these apples. They are now an uncommon variety found sprinkled across America. They were once a very popular commercial apple, best known for their use in apple pies. People love their crisp, tart taste which resembles the Granny Smith.
