Dog's Snout is an old-fashioned cooking apple that was once popular in the county of Yorkshire. It has an unusual shape, rather like a quince, and said to resemble a dog's snout.
The flavour is one-dimensional and mildly acidic. The flesh is soft, and the skin soon turns greasy. The Victorian author Hogg considered it "second-rate", but also noted the passing resemblance to Keswick Codlin.
Dog's Snout is a good example of a regional culinary apple that rapidly fell out of favour as better transport links in the 19th century brought access to bigger and better varieties.
