SWEETANGO APPLES

When you pick up a SweeTango, you’ve got a special breed in your hands — anything but “just another apple.” This favorite apple.
While SweeTango stands out as a solo act, this apple also shines as part of an ensemble, adding unique zest to a wide variety of apple recipes ranging from classic to to cutting edge.

PROFILE

SweeTango tastes like none other. We like to say SweeTango makes your taste buds dance. The SweeTango has a texture similar to ‘Honeycrisp’ with a slightly tart and citric quality. The name “SweeTango” is a portmanteau of the words sweet and tangy.

STORY

Our story begins at the University of Minnesota, where expert apple breeders – using time-honored horticultural techniques – struck gold by marrying the Honeycrisp and Zestar varieties. (Honeycrisp was the bride, and Zestar! the groom … seriously!) The offspring of this happy couple is Minneiska, the tree that gives us the SweeTango apple. Soon after came the creation of the Next Big Thing cooperative, a group of committed apple growers selected to cultivate SweeTango. The cooperative includes some of the best apple growers in the world. Only members of Next Big Thing can grow SweeTango, which allows us to maintain top quality and ensure that SweeTango is the best apple around, year after year. Introduced in 2009, SweeTango has earned raves for its standout flavor and texture. SweeTango, a seasonal apple harvested in early fall, is available during apple season across the United States and Canada.When SweeTango season hits, don’t miss your chance to stock up on this superior variety of apple.
