You won’t find these everywhere, but if you do find them at a natural foods store, food co-op or other specialty retailer – be sure to try them this September and October: Organic SweeTango Apples from Washington.
I have two favorite snacking apples: Honeycrisp Apples in the Fall; Jazz Apples in the Winter. But there are some really exciting apple varieties making their way to the marketplace the last few years and this one has made it on may radar, big-time: SweeTango. If you like Honeycrisp, you should try SweeTango Apples! This newer premium Apple is a cross between the Honeycrisp and Zestar! varieties. The flavor is very sweet with just a light amount of tanginess, but less acidic bite than Honeycrisp. The bright red over yellow skinned SweeTango has an exceptional, popping-crisp texture. Crunchy and juicy like a Honeycrisp, but not hard like a Pink Lady or Granny Smith.
