Sweet Sixteen Apple ScionwoodThis is a twig for grafting. Fall. MN 1630 (MN447 x Northern Spy) U Minn, 1979. Truly excellent fresh eating, although it is too sweet for some palates. Whenever anyone eats a Sweet Sixteen for the first time, you know they will be surprised. Fine-textured crisp flesh contains an astounding unusually complex combination of sweet, nutty and spicy flavors with slight anise essence, sometimes described as cherry, vanilla or even bourbon. We always love Sweet Sixteen season. Round-conic bronze-red medium-sized fruit, striped and washed with rose-red. Annual bearer if thinned. Reaches its best flavor and texture in northern districts. Keeps till midwinter. One of the wonderful progeny of Frostbite. We hope to introduce more of them! Some resistance to scab. Blooms mid to late season. Z3-6.
