Malus domestica 'Sweet Sixteen'
  • Summary
  • Hardiness Zone & More

"Sweet Sixteen is a popular apple for very cold northern regions. It ripens in early fall, just ahead of Honeycrisp™. It is crisp and juicy with an exotic yellow flesh and a very sweet, unusual sugar cane or spicy cherry candy flavor. The fruit stores for 5 to 8 weeks. It is a good all purpose apple.

Sweet Sixteen comes to us from the University of Minnesota breeding program and was introduced in 1977. It is a cross of Malinda and Northern Spy.
