DESCRIPTION

SweeTango, as the name implies, is a sweet apple with spicy overtones. It packs a juicy, crisp crunch much like its 'mother' Honeycrisp. This deep red variety is ready for harvest in late August and early September.

HISTORY

SweeTango was bred at the University of Minnesota and became available in 2009. It is a cross between Honeycrisp and Zestar! It is a trademarked variety and no growers in New England are currently licensed to grow it.
