Fameuse Snow Apple


The Fameuse (Old French for famous) or Snow Apple (aptly named due to its glistening snow white flesh and the tree’s hardiness in cold climates) origins are in France from a seed in the 1600’s and it came to North America in the 1700’s to French settlements. It is one of the very few apples that often reproduce true to variety when planted from seed and is considered a parent of the well-known McIntosh.
