Australian family-owned fresh produce business Montague is presenting its first apple variety of the 2023 harvest: SweeTango. SweeTango is crisp and sweet with a zesty watermelon flavor and touch of citrus and spice. SweeTango displays a bright red blush over a yellow cream breaking background and is the perfect fruit to enjoy with white wine and seafood on a late summer’s evening.
This crunchy, juicy apple will be for sale at selected Woolworths supermarkets and greengrocers nationally from 27 February. SweeTango was developed by apple breeders from the University of Minnesota who crossed Zester and Honeycrisp apples using non-GMO breeding techniques. In 2009, SweeTango apples appeared for the first time on the US apple market.
