Now maybe we know why they were keeping the name a secret...

Maybe it's because it's kind of stupid: The new University of Minnesota apple release is named 'SweeTango'.

An Apple Is Born (Epicurious)

Plus: We've entered a new age! YouTube trailers for fruit cultivars!
SweeTango - A Sneak Preview (YouTube)


(Much thanks to the anonymous commenter who noted this on the post below...I thought it deserved more exposure).

All I can say is I hope the apple is better than the name. It's got an encouraging pedigree at least—Honeycrisp x Zestar.

That video's pretty cool actually. I kind of wish they would treat more horticulturally significant releases and news with a little more pizazz. Maybe then people will start thinking of us plant scientists as rock stars like we should be. Or, maybe not.

I do wonder what chemical is responsible for the "spicy" note that the breeder mentions in the video. I bet Randy Beaudry or his student Sobuko-san would know. I'm guessing some sort of terpene-alcohol like linalool.

All I know is that it's fall and new apples are coming into stores and that so far they are really good... even in Florida.
