Description

Biting into this apple makes one quickly aware of its McIntosh relationship. Greatly important heirloom apple for the US due to its many important progeny in the Mac family. Skin can become deeply red, and sports a stark white flesh of very good eating quality. Crisp when fresh, becoming softer and creamy in storage but retains flavor. Pronounced fa-moo. Or you can call it "Snow apple", or perhaps Pomme de Neige if you are really fancy. Ripens in late September in Walden. Hardy at least to zone 3, likely colder.

In addition to grafting the fruit trees we sell, we also offer custom grafting services. We can graft a hard to find cultivar, a reproduction from your own tree, or we can graft onto an existing tree on your property. New trees can be sent right away or grown a year here.
