Fruit salad, the staple of brunches everywhere, has always had a dark side. You know what we're talking about - after hours of cutting up fresh fruit into perfectly sized chunks to make the salad look great, especially if you're feeding a big group.
Then, after all that hard work you unwrap your masterpiece on the buffet table, only to see the apples have already started to brown! Nothing makes a fresh-fruit salad look as unappetizing as browning apples in the mix.
Now we have Snowsweet® Apple Tree (Malus 'Wildung') to the rescue! This relative newcomer to the orchard scene, introduced in 2006 at the University of Minnesota, was developed to have snow-white flesh that stays crisp and the flesh is slow to oxidize when exposed to air (turning brown) long after you slice it.
The beautiful fruit is that classic apple-red and features a bronze-red blush and overtones, so they look as appetizing as they taste. The creamy-white flesh has a sweet-tart balanced flavor with rich overtones. It's even described as buttery!
The sweet fruit ripens in September, just in time for your fall recipes! These apples even store for a long time, up to 2 months or more!
This tree is as beautiful as the fruit it bears. Very open but with a slight 'droop' that lends a very romantic look to the home landscape.
The size is perfect front and center as specimen plants and focal points! The spring bloom is enough to make lovely rows along your driveway and property curb appeal boosting power.
Small orchards and urban gardens have room for these fantastic ornamentals. Perfect for dual-purpose, edible landscaping and garden decor!
For low shade and privacy, strategically place a few around the patio and seating areas for lovely fragrance, bloom display and shade.
Requiring full sun, especially morning sun to dry the leaves of dew, Apple trees have the best yields when placed in 8 hours of sun a day or more!
Best in organically rich, well-drained soil that is fertile. Regular watering also provides the largest crops, so protect your investment with consistent access to moisture and a layer of mulch to retain moisture and insulate the root system.
This is a great Northern Apple tree where it survives harsh winters without a problem and hardy zones 4 through 7.
Featuring average resistance to scab and fire blight, these are very adaptable fruit trees!
For best yields, you'll want to pick another early or mid-season variety like Empire or Red Delicious to plant with it as a pollinator.
No more waiting until you get to the party to slice up the apples at the last minute!
For fantastic appetizers and sauces, don't be embarrassed at the brunch buffet table again! Order brown-resistant Snowsweet® Apple Tree from Nature Hills today!
