SweeTango apples are set to be featured in podcasts during the peak season from September to November.

SweeTango growers have partnered with nine podcasts with listener followings who fit the demographic of current SweeTango consumers, according to a news release.

The emphasis of the campaign is on Millennials and Gen Z listeners, according to the release.

SweeTango endorsements are set to air before and in the middle of individual podcast episodes with a wide range of topics, according to the release.
