Kids Apple Tasting, French Market – 10.2.10

September 23, 2010 at 10:01 am

Come try some apples!  On October 2, 2010 the Chicago French Market will hold an apple tasting for kids, ages 5-10.  Apples sampled will include the latest apple creation from the folks at the University of Minnesota, the  ”SweeTango.”  Looking to match the runaway success of the Honeycrisp, they created this one.  It combines the texture of the Honeycrisp with the sweetness of the Zestar apple.  Kids (and their parents) should learn how to pronounce the SweeTango.  In addition to tasting it, there will be three other distinctive apple varieties.  There are also plans to train the kids to taste like a food critic
