Sweet Taste

One bite of SweeTango™ brings you the true taste of summer: as juicy as a watermelon, its aroma is a unique mix of zesty freshness and honey sweet.

Ruby red where the sun kisses its peel, SweeTango™ sure gets noticed, thanks to its extraordinary looks and sunny disposition – a quality we strive to preserve by treating each apple with extra care – from the tree to the store.

Sweet times

The SweeTango™ harvest begins around mid-August, so it really has summer under its skin. Available in Europe until the end of November, SweeTango™ apples have cells that are double the size of any other apples’ making SweeTango™:

Sweet Story

SweeTango™ is the result of the natural cross of two different apple varieties: Honerycrisp and Zestar, both native of the rich Mississipi river soil.
The offspring of this lucky marriage is our beloved SweeTango™ apple.

Sweet life
The Trees

THE TREES

Throughout the entire value chain – from tree to shop - the SweeTango™ apple is treated with greatest care in order to safeguard its unique appearance and taste. The creation of a new apple variety is a slow, complicated process. Getting to the desired result can take decades, cross after cross. Our young SweeTango™ trees are planted by hand and carefully nurtured during the first 12-18 months of their life. Later, our trees are moved to bigger orchards nearby where they are provided with food, water and sunlight, protected from pests and winter frosts. SweeTango™ trees have thick foliage, making it harder for our apples to ripen in time. It can take up to 3 years for a young apple tree to produce fruits.

THE SHEARS

From mid-August to November, SweeTango™ is delicately hand-picked. Each apple at a time – which means we keep going back to the same tree to check each fruit’s color and flesh. SweeTango™ apples are very delicate and have a strong stem that needs to be cut down during the picking process; otherwise, it could damage the other apples.

THE CRATES

Finally, our apples get transported from our orchards to our stores. We use special foam mats and smaller sized vans to ensure the least bump&dent factor possible. As soon as they arrive to their final destination, our SweeTango™ apples are best stocked cold, in order to preserve their freshness, juiciness and crunch as long as we can. Make sure to do the same!
