(A 2 lb bag will average 8-10 small apples.)
Sweet sixteens are an heirloom variety that is good for fresh eating or cooking. Of the varieties of apples we have, the sweet sixteens are the sweetest and larger in size than the haralred. Jerry claims that these have a pineapple flavor. The sweet sixteens are the most eye-appealing if you’re looking for a “pretty” apple that has minimal blemishes.
These apples are grown without insecticides or fungicides so cosmetic blemishes are to be expected. The black spots are a fungus that only affects the surface of the skin. It is harmless and can be washed off (or eaten!). Ugly apples are your assurance that they were grown without chemicals!
