Initially Jared planted between 30-40 Snow Sweet apple trees. When he finally tasted his first Snow Sweet apple he knew they would be a hit at the orchard and we now grow over 200 Snow Sweet apple trees. And the best news is - the Snow Sweet are a hit!
They are a bit tricky to pick though - there is a certain texture on the skin of the apple that needs to be there or the apples don't taste quite right. Luckily Jared and Frank have this figured out!
Approximate Ripening Date: September 24th
Flavor: Crisp texture with a sweet, almost buttery taste. Definitely a new customer favorite.
Baking: The Snow Sweet cooks down somewhat but still remains slightly chunky. It has a good sweet, tangy flavor when cooked but could benefit from mixing in other apples with it.
History: Sharon x Connell Red cross released by University of Minnesota in 2006.
