The SnowSweet® Apple is a newer cross from the University of Minnesota (Wildung x Snow) that was bred as an ideal choice for Northern gardeners. This apple tree produces fine fruit with eye-catching color. These apples have a bronze-red blush with a yellow-green background.
Ripening about two weeks after the Honeycrisp, in September, SnowSweet® apples are a chef’s delight. They have a crisp, white flesh that resists browning, long after cutting. Ideal for salads and fresh eating, along with making preserves and baking. As a bonus, the fruit stores well for months!
The SnowSweet® apple tree has a slight drooping, open shape. It is a cold-hardy fruit tree, with disease resistance to both apple scab and fire blight.
