Snow apples are round, conical, to ovate shaped fruits with a symmetrical appearance. The skin is smooth, matte, and has a yellow-green base, covered in bright red blush and striping. Underneath the surface, the flesh is soft, white, and crisp, encasing a small central core filled with black-brown seeds. The flesh may also be streaked with red and pink hues, depending on growing conditions. The sweet fruits were first grown in Canada in the early 18th century and quickly became one of the most cultivated varieties, named after the apple’s white flesh and resilience in cold weather. Snow apples have also earned many other names throughout history, including Fameuse, which means “famous” in French, Chimney apples, and Snow Chimney apples. Snow apples are considered to be a dessert variety, primarily consumed fresh, and are one of the few apple cultivars that can be grown from seed without alteration or mutation.
