Fameuse (Snow) Apples and Apple Cranberry Popover Puff Recipe

The Fameuse is also known as a Snow Apple because of its pure white fresh. I read in a book that this apples stores well but we haven't found that to be the case with our corop of Snow apples. We recommend getting them and eating them within a few weeks.

Approximate Ripening Date: September 26th

Flavor: More sweet a than tart! Many people remember these apples from their childhoods. Not a super hard apple.

Baking: This apple cooks down. I would highly recommend mixing it with other apples for baking.

History: The history of this apple is a mystery but it became a favorite variety around northern Vermont and Canada.
