Formerly known as the Carousel Apple, the Cameo produces rave review from growers and consumers. Cameo apples are prized for their thin skin with a crisp and juicy texture. They are described as having the perfect balance in taste between sweet and tart.

Cameo fruit is medium to large and uniform in size featuring a distinctive red stripe over a yellow and light-green under color. You'll love the aroma of a freshly cut Cameo!

The trees have lovely white spring blooms and a very ornamental harvest. 

Their resistance to browning when cut makes them very popular in salads and sandwiches. Include Cameo slices on cheeses plates for an effortlessly chic dessert.
