The Snow Fameuse Organic Heirloom Apple, Malus domestica 'Snow Fameuse', is one of the oldest and most desirable dessert apples, a parent of the aromatic McIntosh. ("Fameuse" means "famous" in French). It is a very old and attractive red apple brought to America in the 1700’s by early French settlers. Sometimes called the Red American or Royal Snow Apple, the Snow Fameuse apple is medium-sized with smooth greenish-yellow skin that is mostly covered with a deep red blush and lighter red striping. The flesh is tender, has a spicy, distinctive flavor, and "snow white" like its name suggests; has an occasional crimson stain near the skin. Fameuse is a very hardy tree variety, so should do well in cold climates. It can tend to be biennial bearing if allowed to overcrop, so thin early to reduce the crop load. Snow Fameuse is a very heavy bearing tree that is excellent for home orchards and requires full sun. Ripening in September to October, it has a short shelf life. Use this delicious apple fresh off the tree, in cider, or in culinary creations.
