2010 Parents vs. Child Apple Taste-Off Results

Monday, September 13th, 2010

The people have spoken, and once again, SweeTango(R) apples are the clear winner!  We offered samples of our Honeycrisp (mom), Zestar! (dad), and SweeTango(R) (child) to festivalgoers at the Silver Lake Sand Dunes Apple & BBQ Cook-Off Festival on Saturday.  After sampling all three varieties, tasters voted for their favorite.  Of the 472 votes placed this year, 237 were for SweeTango(R) apples.  Honeycrisp came in a distant second, with 132 votes, and Zestar! followed with 103 votes.  Thanks to all of the people who participated in this tasty contest!  Of course, our apples are available at our market until they are sold out, and we offer free samples there, too.

Is SweeTango(R) Better Than Honeycrisp?

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

Honeycrisp apples have been the gold standard of apples, and with the new SweeTango(R) apple comes the question, “Is it better than Honeycrisp?”  Each person gets to decide for himself/herself, but we are holding the Parents vs. Child Taste-Off  at our booth in Silver Lake September 11, in a good-natured attempt to quantify the answer.  Join us at the Silver Lake Sand Dunes Apple & BBQ Cook-Off Festival on Saturday, sample Honeycrisp (mom), Zestar! (dad), and SweeTango(R) (child), and vote for your favorite!  We will post the results at our market in Hart, and at  All three varieties will be fully ripe and tasty this year, so it will be a fair (and fun) contest!  (For more information about the festival, visit
