What's it like?
The apple is rapidly becoming the most popular among apple connoisseurs. 'HoneyCrisp' is truly an apple for the millennium. The fruit has an exceptionally crisp, sweet and juicy texture with a complex sweet-tart flavor. It is excellent for fresh eating, and salads, and is good for sauce, baking, and pies. This is without a doubt our favorite apple.
The 'HoneyCrisp' apple was produced from a 1960 cross between 'Macoun' and 'Honeygold', as part of the University of Minnesota apple breeding program. With strict requirements about where and how it can be grown, 'HoneyCrisp' is not for every grower. For those with the location and that are willing to give this apple the added attention it needs, a true treat awaits their customers.
