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.
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.
