This, along with Red Gravensteins, are one of the oldest heirloom varieties of apple we have at the orchard, dating from at least the 1600s in France. These apples are so named for their “snow white” flesh. They are belived to be the ancestors of the popular McIntosh apples. They were introduced to the US from Canada in 1739 and few Snow Apple trees now remain. They are nice a crisp, good for eating and cooking. Snow apples ripen in late September to early October.
