The Sweet Sixteen is an attractive apple; medium sized and yellow in colour with red stripes. This apple is known in particular for its unique taste: sweet with an acidic hint, and incredibly full-flavoured. It is also crisp and very juicy. The taste of this apple ranges from hints of cider, spices, anise, cherry, vanilla bourbon and nuttiness, to name just a few! The flavour is already good before the apple is completely ripe; at this point it has more tartness and the cherry flavour is more pronounced; but at full ripeness its taste is really amazing; on our table it’s the apple everyone reaches for first!It’s a wonderful apple to eat fresh but also gives excellent results when cooked. The taste is even more refined when the summer is not too hot.
