Successor to the Honeycrisp

Well, fall is approaching and that means a new batch of my favorite apple, Honeycrisp.

In a recent Yahoo article, I learned something about the Honeycrisp development. It was created by the University of Minnesota.

So, I was surprise that the University of Minnesota has announced a new variety called the SweeTango.  Read the story here.  It has some of the characteristics of my favorite apple, Honeycrisp, and another UofM variety – Zestar!

Although it will be a year or two before this new variety hits our markets, I envy those in Minnesota who will get a sample of it this fall.  I hope you enjoy it!
