An annual bearer of sweet apples resistant to browning! 

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.

  1. Keith Wheeler

    The SnowSweet seems to be doing very well in my garden. Still too young to product fruit.

  2. Shannon Frericks

    Another great apple tree that survives in the 4A Zone. I can’t be happier with the SnowSweet variety it’s proven itself. I’ve also had apples off it already. We’ll see how it compares to Liberty. Very similar in taste but not as melee. I took a bite out of one apple and left it on the counter and it didn’t turn brown for quite a while. It’ll make a great salad Apple.

    My wife bought me two snowsweet for Fathers Day last year. I couldn’t be more happy with their progress. Still too young for fruit but they’ve growing like weeds! A+

  4. Adron Lamb

    My tree arrived a day earlier than estimated as I was preparing the space for it and when planted it started to bud within about ten days. I was almost a little surprised at how fast it came to life after being fully dormant. Great little tree, thank you!

  5. Michael Harms

    I planted 18 fruit tress and 6 berry bushes I have one cherry tree one apricot tree and one berry bush that have died. The rest are doing good. Will be contacting Stark bros for replacement. Will see how that goes

  6. Randy Eastman

    This arrived and it branched, bloomed and leafed out. So far it is doing great. looking forward to apples in a couple of years.

  7. Sam And Patty Blackstone

    Our Snowsweet trees are doing just fine. Water on a regular when needed, we should have Apples in a few years. Snowsweet is a good winter storage apple, if stored at 33 to 35 degrees.

  8. Dennus Morgan

    Doing great, It seems to like it here as well as the Arkansas Black.

  9. Joseph Garcia

    What can I say? They are alive lol too young to bare fruit.

  10. Kathy Denny

    The tree is doing very well for being newly planted this year.
