Meet the sweet, juicy Honeycrisp successor

On shelves for only a few short months (August – November), SweeTango®brand Minneiska cultivar apples are part sweet, part tangy and have a refreshing crunch second to none.

SweeTango is the harmonious blend of the popular Honeycrisp apple variety and Zestar. Researchers at the University of Minnesota naturally crossed these two apples back in 2000, bringing together the best qualities from its mother (Honeycrisp) and father (Zestar) to create one special fruit. The first SweeTango apples made their way to market in 2009.

This special apple retains Honeycrisp’s sweet honey and citrus flavors, while also boasting Zestar’s warm fall spice notes and mildly tart, vibrant acidity. The most memorable part? Due to its extra-large structural cells, a bite into SweeTango apples causes the membranes to “shatter,” resulting in a completely satisfying and audible crunch.

SweeTango makes for a perfect snacking apple, is a great pairing companion, and brings an extra zing to salads and other fresh preparations. Download our FREE SweeTango eBook for a complete set of recipes to try!
