Sour Green Apple Trees

I need an little technical help please.
I want to plant some apple trees this year, I have no idea what the propper name would be for the type of tree / apples
other than a sour green apple. Perhaps the apples of my youth( early 70s 20 miles west of Chicago) were picked to early? and just tasted sour? or is there such tree as a sour apple tree? I do remember them being green, and tasty.
Can any one here point me in the right direction? I would like to plant 3 trees, two sour apple, and from what I have read on the net, another tree to help them pollinate?
Thanks in advance to any you who can help.
Roland

YOUR SOUR GREEN APPLE TREES ARE TYPICALLY CALLED GRANNY SMITH APPLES.
