Sweet Tart

SnowSweet is a new, trademarked apple from Minnesota, and it can only be grown by licensed growers. Slightly conical in shape, it is mostly red over a green-yellow skin. SnowSweet’s flavor, as its name suggests, is mostly sweet, with a little tartness. Its white flesh, which accounts for the “snow” in its name, is slow to brown, making it a good choice in salads. Developed for cold hardiness at the University of Minnesota, SnowSweet is a cross between Sharon and Connell Red. A late-season apple, it was introduced commercially in 2006.
