Sweet Sixteen Apple Tree


The sweet sixteen apple tree produces fruit with a McIntosh style texture and flavor that is very unique in its combination of sweetness and slightly anise-like flavor. While it may seem too sweet to some, others notice the vanilla, spice, and bourbon flavors. In addition to eating it fresh, you will have to try it next time you cook cider, pies, applesauce, and butter. Although it’s resistant to scab and fire blight, it’s somewhat susceptible to apple rust and powdery mildew.
