Heavy Table has the scoop on the SweeTango.

I visited the Pepin Heights Orchard in Lake City (‘Birthplace of Water Skiing’) back in August and found the SweeTango a bit wanting. To be fair it was a number of weeks before the harvest had started in earnest, but in no way did it knock my socks off like the first time I had a HoneyCrisp circa fall 2005.

The article is a great read on varietal development and the politics (Appletics?) behind the distribution of the SweeTango.
