Highly coveted apples are headed to Toronto
—The approximate weight of all the SweeTango apples that will be available for purchase in Canada over the next two months, according to data provided by Nova Scotia fruit tree cooperative Scotian Gold, the main Canadian grower and seller of the Honeycrisp-Zestar hybrid. (At an estimated three apples per pound, that’s over 3,350,000 apples.) SweeTangos, known for their effervescent crunch, will hit shelves across the GTA sometime next week. Last year’s batch totaled about 800,000 lbs.
