Sweet Sixteen

SWEET SIXTEEN is a cross of Malinda and Northern Spy, introduced by the University of Minnesota in 1973. A large, conical shape, red-striped apple, its cream-colored flesh is crisp with a slight acidity. Late blooming and early bearing, it is resistant to both scab and fireblight. The tree is hardy and vigorous growing. This dessert apple stores well and ripens in early October.
