Swaar

Sweet
Description

Swaar was developed by Dutch settlers in New York’s Hudson River Valley and was first cited in 1804 (its Dutch name refers to its size and weight). It is a large, slightly conical green apple with a yellow blush and some russeting. Its light yellow flesh is crisp, sweet, and moderately juicy. Swaar is considered better for fresh eating than cooking.
