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.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Most of our fruit trees (apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, quince, and cherry) are grafted/budded and are 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. The other trees are seedlings, such as pawpaw, mulberry, persimmon, shade, berry, and flowering trees which range from 18-36" tall.

A rootstock primarily controls a tree's size and how early it bears fruit. Learn more about our specific rootstocks.
