The apple varieties listed below are orchard favorites and highly recommended for fresh eating. Many of these varieties also make fantastic cider due to their high sugar content and ample acidity. I've highlighted a few standouts in the "Also Cider!" section.

I offer one hint as you go about your selection: Hone in on the 'ugly' apples. How did such unremarkable fruits find hospitable homes for centuries without fail? Flavor, my friend, flavor.

Product Details

Northern Spy x Frostbite, University of Minnesota, 1977

Like Keepsake, Sweet Sixteen derives from a Northern Spy x Frostbite cross and inherits high levels of crunch, crisp, and juice. In addition to a flawless texture and sweet-apple taste, Sweet Sixteen apples have a delightful 'Cherry Coke' flavor that transports me back to childhood.

As with other UMN varieties, Sweet Sixteen trees are extremely cold-hardy. They've also demonstrated the necessary vigor and scab resistance to thrive in our low-maintenance orchard.

Brix: 13
Approx Harvest: Late September
Flowering Period: Mid-Season
