Jeff and I were watching a documentary about U2.
Sidney began to mimic Bono’s posture.
We all laughed and laughed.
(All of this to ask: Do you have a favorite variety of apple? I just did a side by side comparison of SweeTango and Honeycrisp, and SweeTango was definitely the winner. I know at least three people who would slap me for saying such a thing, but look at me. I just said it.)

We bought a ton of apples today, and I think my favorite was the Suncrisp Golden. It tastes just as the name suggests it would.
I love Honeycrisp but haven’t seen a SweeTango. I’ll keep my eyes open.
Honeycrisps WISH they were Sweetangos!
Honeycrisp is my favorite, but maybe that’s because I’ve never heard of or tasted a SweeTango. Wherever did you find them?
I just made apple oatmeal bread! Used Regent and Connell Read. Don’t know how the taste or texture will be – but it sure does smell good. I just love the honeycrisp texture so much that I don’t know if anything else can compete. But I did like the SweeTango flavor……
we’re fond of Galas around here, which are small, complex and slightly tart. It’s not very ‘foodie’ of me, but I dearly love Granny Smiths.
For some reason I never fell IN LOVE with honeycrisp. I like Macoun.
Empire! With Cortlands taking a close second. Combine half empires, half cortlands and you will have the best applesauce on the planet.
I prefer Pink Lady.
Side note: The other day, the checker at the Fred Meyer, when ringing up my Pink Ladies said to me, “They have just got to stop engineering all this new fruit.” I had no idea that apples were new.
love honeycrisp. at the farmer’s market in manhattan they cost a fortune. have never heard of sweetango, and will not rest until i taste one. i guess sweetango stands for sweet and tangy?
I’ve never even heard of SweetTangos, but I will say that I made sangria this past weekend using Honeycrisp apples, which turned out amazing and means that I now have a committed relationship to them.
SweeTangos are awesome, like a HoneyCrisp, but with extra “spice,” or something. I can’t identify the flavor, so I have to keep testing. That’s the reason no one else in the family has had the opportunity to do more than admire it.
I will now be seeking the SweeTango. I just cannot imagine anything better than a HoneyCrisp. I accept the challenge.
Dierbergs is the only place I’ve seen them, as yet.
