I am very happy with the Snow Sweet apple. The overall taste and texture is great. My three year old trees on B-118 Root stock produced 35 apples on average. I will be adding 100 more trees next spring.

The flavor is very good, comparable to Jonagold but not quite as sweet. Texture firm, crisp, juicy. The inside is very white. The only downside is that the skin is a bit tough and/or bitter, though not nearly as much as red delicious. I prefer Jonagolds and Cameos, but this is still a very nice juicy apple; I would never turn it down.

Just discovered this apple at Fairfax City Farmer's Market (VA). Great flavor although a sweeter than my usual favorite (Macoun) which I have not found yet this year. Love that it is slow to brown when cut. I hope this newer variety becomes more widely available.

I got just one on 9 October 2014 from Gould Hill Farm in Hopkinton, NH. Compared to an "average" apple, this is big and very sweet with some contrasting acid and good if not gourmet flavor. I will definitely add this to my "reliables" list while exploring heirlooms.

LOVE this apple; I was amazed at how white the apple stayed after I started to eat. Nice combintation of sweet and tart. I've been eating them but will try baking this weekend

Delish! Me and my kids really agreed that this apple was the best in the orchard.
