Malus domestica 'Honeycrisp'

Pick this superior red apple with a crunchy/crisp texture! Honeycrisp boasts a juicy, sweet-tart flavor when picked early, but develops its full-bodied, aromatic profile if left to fully ripen in the mid-late season. Created by the University of Minnesota, you can plan to enjoy it fresh, dried, juiced - it also makes for a superior storage apple!

Honeycrisp is one of our most winter-hardy apple trees, showing little damage even at -40°F! Both scab and fireblight resistant, Honeycrisp has quickly become a favorite for the home grower.

Ask a Question
  • How big are the trees when they are sold? (I need to plan how large a hole to dig)

    4'-5' tall whips, possible side branching. Dig your hole as deep as the root system (which varies) and 2-3 times as wide for best results. A 3 foot diameter hole is usually a good starting place.

  • How tall will the 3 tier espalier honeycrisp tree be when fully grown?

    These are on a semi-dwarf rootstock, so up to 15' tall, but as an espalier you will probably keep it pruned smaller.

  • Is a Johagold a good polinizer for Honey Crisp?

    Jonagold is a polyploid apple and does not provide compatible pollen for diploid apples. Check out our Apple Growing Guide for a full run down on apple pollination!

  • Will you be shipping dwarf fruit trees this fall?

    No, fruit trees are only available to be shipped during the shipping season - late winter through late spring - of any given year. Potted plants like blueberries and select vines and figs will be available for fall shipping.

  • Can I use another honeycrisp as a pollinizer ?

    No, as a grafted clone you will need another apple that is unrealted (so Cosmic Crisp is not an option either). Check out our Apple Growing Guide for more information.

Honeycrisp apple

Good packaging, already planted in a container. A mini dwarf tree. Looking good.

First time customer

I’m pleased with my shipment. Everything arrived when expected and was packaged very well. No damage to any trees or bushes. My honey crisp apple tree has not sprouted any leaves yet. It has only been in the ground for about two weeks, so I need to give it a little more time. The other trees and raspberry bushes I purchased are all growing leaves nicely. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

Delicious apples on a productive dwarf tree!

My dwarf Honeycrisp is almost 13 years old, and at only 4 tall it produces a large crop of delicious apples every year. It is in shade after 2pm, which I believe is the reason it has topped out at less than the full 6 height, but that hasn t seemed to affect production very much. Last year there were about 50 apples at harvest, and that was after thinning over half of them in the spring. No disease or pest problems at all; one of my favorite fruits in my garden!

Great little tree

Bought my mini-dwarf honeycrisp from Rainier nursery about 5 years ago. It started bearing the 3rd year. Last year I thinned it and got 15 good-sized apples; this year I didn t get around to thinning and after throwing out 5-6 apples that the birds got into, had 22 apples of various sizes. It s planted near a pollinator (Cox), and is next to a rock wall so it gets some warmth retained. It gets morning & midday sun, shade mid-to-late afternoon.

Accidental breakage

The tree arrived healthy, but we broke it while planting. I ordered a new tree, so I'll review that one when it arrives!
