This evening, on the NPR show “All Things Considered” they aired a just under 5 minute piece on the SweeTango apple. It was not long ago that I felt like I was in the minority that knew SweeTango was one of the most crisp and best tasting available. Now it’s appearing on a national show! The timing of this thought is a little bit off as the season for SweeTango is just about over. SweeTango ripens in early September. However it does keep pretty well. You can still find them some places. I have seen them in 3 grocery stores in Michigan (Busch’s, Plum Market, and Westborn Market) in the last week. When the apple first came out this year, I came up with a list of places that were carrying them. So you can still check out these sources, to see if they still have any.
In case you missed the show, you can listen to it below.
