  • 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.

Sweet Sixteen is vigorous with a moderately spreading habit. It is an early bearing and dependable producer. The tree blooms rather late, so should be pollinated by other mid- to late season bloomers. It is reported to be somewhat resistant to fire blight and scab. It is a dependable apple for the backyard.
