The long wait is over! After an extremely small harvest in 2012, we are starting to enjoy the 2013 harvest of SweeTango(R) apples! This sweet & sassy daughter of Honeycrisp (Mom) and Zestar!(TM) (Dad) is a licensed variety; only the apples that meet the quality standards get the name “SweeTango”. With its mouthwatering juiciness, enjoyable “CRUNCH”, and complex flavor to tickle the palate, SweeTango(R) apples have made a number of fans here in west Michigan and beyond!
We’ll be sampling out SweeTango(R) apples at the Silver Lake Sand Dunes Apple & BBQ Cook-Off Festival on September 14 again this year. It’s always a fun day, especially when we see the great reactions of people who are trying a SweeTango(R) apple for the very first time. Why not get a group together and come to Silver Lake for a fun day?
If crowds aren’t your thing, just visit us at Rennhack Orchards Market in Hart (conveniently located one mile east of US-31 Exit 149). We’re open every Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and we’ll have some SweeTango(R) apples for you to sample, along with a variety of our other home-grown fresh fruits & vegetables, on our sample shelf (on the wall to your right as you come in the front door). We specialize in local and Michigan-made foods and gift items, as well as growing most of the fresh produce we sell. We’re close to the (paved) bicycle trail, so come on over while the weather is nice!
