My Experience

Looking for the best of both worlds when it comes to your apples? SweeTango® is the apple for you. It’s both sweet and tangy and has the loudest crunch on earth (we’re serious). You’ll love SweeTango® for its juicy crunch and hints of fall spices with vibrant acidity.

SweeTango® has larger cells than most apples (and more juice!) so it’s best to keep this one out of the oven. You won’t go wrong snacking on it, topping it on a salad, or pairing it with cheese.

My Story

The SweeTango® brand Minneiska cultivar apple was developed through natural cross-pollination breeding methods in 2000 by researchers at the University of Minnesota. Introduced to the market in 2009, SweeTango® is the successor to the popular Honeycrisp apple. It’s part Honeycrisp and part Zestar®.

Stemilt is lucky enough to grow and market SweeTango® apples for the Western United States. We’re part of the NextBigThing, a growers’ cooperative that manages the variety throughout the U.S. and Canada. Only the highest quality Minneiska apples go to market under the SweeTango® brand.

My Story

The SweeTango® brand Minneiska cultivar apple is the successor to the popular Honeycrisp apple variety, and was first introduced to the marketplace in 2009. SweeTango is part Honeycrisp, part Zestar, and was developed by researchers at the University of Minnesota in 2000. SweeTango has larger cells than many apples, so it shatters when bitten, making for a great crunch and eating experience. SweeTango apples are brought to market by NextBigThing, a grower's cooperative that Stemilt is a member of. Because the variety is managed, only the highest-quality apples go to market as SweeTango. Stemilt has the rights to grow and market SweeTango apples in the western United States.
