The SweeTango® is new hybrid variety that is the tasty result of more than a decade of cross-breeding at the University of Minnesota with another well-known variety, the Honeycrisp.

The fruit has a very deep red blush over a bright yellow background; its flavor is juicy sweet with hints of cinnamon and the clean crunch associated with its parent, the Honeycrisp. The name refers to the close dance of unique flavors this fruit offers.

Choose apples that are firm and hollow sounding when tossed a few inches in the air and caught in palm of hand. Avoid dense sounding or dull looking fruit, both a sign of age. Kept refrigerated, apples will store for two-three weeks.
