Long time readers may know that I am a big fan of the HoneyCrisp apple. It's amazing how much you can love an apple variety but there you have it. So I was pretty excited to hear about the new SweeTango apple. The SweeTango was developed at the University of Minnesota, the same as the HoneyCrisp. The SweeTango is in fact a cross betwen the HoneyCrisp and Zestar! I didn't add the ! to Zestar! on purpose. The ! is part of the Zestar! name.
Anyhoo, we are lucky enough to have a local orchard growing SweeTangos and we got a few of them. Oh yahh... they are tasty! My only complaint is the ones we got are so darn big! About half way through one of these bad boys I have to take a break. Not a bad problem to have really.
