SnowSweet Apple was introduced by the University of Minnesota in 2006. The fruit ripens in early October and is noted for its sweet flavor and snow white flesh. SnowSweet (Wildung variety) is a registered trademark of the University of Minnesota.
This plant is no longer in production. The product info remains for informational purposes.
Fruit Notes: Excellent for use in fruit salads as the flesh is very slow to brown when cut and exposed to the air.
We offer this variety on M7 rootstock which is semi-dwarf and free-standing.
Apple trees are relished by deer, numerous small mammals, and insects.
Annual pruning is needed to promote better light penetration and air flow thru the canopy for best colored and flavored fruits. Find more information on Training & Pruning Fruit Trees.
Apples are prone to many insect and disease issues. Preventative spraying or growing the fruit in bags (organic) is suggested to obtain a quality fruit crop. Find a spraying guide and more information on Best Pesticides For The Home Orchardist.
One of the parents of this apple is Connell Red. Connell Red is a sport of Fireside apple and was selected for its improved red skin color by Tom Connell at Connell Orchards near Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.
SnowSweet Apple must be cross-pollinated with a crabapple or different apple variety to produce fruit.
