About Sweet Sixteen
Red-streaked, conical fruits have a sweet, complex flavor of spicy cherry with a hint of vanilla. Crisp, juicy, and excellent for fresh eating or baking. Introduced by the U of M in 1977. Ripens in mid-September. May take a little longer than others to start bearing, up to five years from planting. M7 semidwarf rootstock.
Beautiful, fragrant spring flowers and fall fruit. Apples require another variety for pollenizing, but apple or crabapple trees are usually nearby in most areas.
