The Honeycrisp apple has a successor, thanks to researchers at the University of Minnesota; Meet the SweeTango® apples, a Honeycrisp-Zestar cross that first appeared on the market in 2009. The apple was named SweeTango® because of its flavor profile, which is equal parts sweet and tangy with hints of fall spices and vibrant acidity. On the outside, SweeTango® is blush with hints of deep red and subtle hues of yellow. On the inside, expect a lovely creamy white color. The crunch and flavor of this apple makes it a great choice for snacking!
